deyholla (8882) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, murky burnt orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has lots of bitter citrus with some sweet grains and a slight booziness. Flavor combines resin and bitter citrus with a strong sweet grain backbone.

Garrold (3024) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Thick as a bag orange. Film of super sticky, white head. Rich, juicy, thick, pithy, citric hop. Big, sweet malts. White pepper spice. A tad of savoury. Taste is orangey sweet. Turns pithy, zesty, spicy bitter. Soft, chewy palate. Finishes long, spicy, citric bitter. Very nice. Drinks way under the ABV.

Fashawn (492) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 18, 2015
Aroma pulito, elegante, facilmente distinguibile ma che non fa della forza la sua arma principale. Porta un sentore balsamico dato dgli aghi di pino, poi del pompelmo, ed una fragranza di cracker. Abbastanza elegante, come detto. In bocca l’inizio è coerente con l’idea del cracker, un intermezzo breve di ananas, e qualche altro frutto tropicale tipo papaya e melone di pane, prima della pioggia di agrumi molto più decisa e presente. Soprattutto scorza d’arancia. La carbonatazione è sufficiente, il corpo medio, ed è abbastanza densa da risultare leggermente appiccicosa al palato. Chiude secca, senza un amaro prorompente ma portando un ventaglio di freschezza dato dal pino. Ritorna, il pino, anche nel retrogusto dove un leggerissimo warming etilico si fa notare insieme al sapore balsamico.

mile (3572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full malty sweetish aroma, some caramel with some floral/berry fruitiness - light notes of melon, some grapefruit - light citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and floral/berry fruitiness, some grapefruit/citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light - some caramel and light floral/berry fruitiness, grapefruit - some citrus hoppyness, faint alcohol. Sweetish IIPA with weird floral - berry fruitiness. These single hops just do not work.
