Had this in bottle at home Sunday 31st August 2014 An interesting nose, I wish that I could be specific about what I could pick up but sadly I can’t , at first I thought cheesy but then noticed Loz was grating aged Gouda into tonights tea. Fuzzy hops but strong i.e. the abv does show a little but not tobthe detriment. Orangey in the mouth, a little sweet orange, some pine resin on the aroma. Liked this. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7

Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours amber gold with a slight head. Aroma is citrus/pine/stone fruit. Med + body. Flavor is instant hop burn. Seems pretty pine. A little earth. Lots of hop in this. Finishes fruity/piney/bitter. Quite an experience!

Murky orange with small, quickly disappearing head. Grapefruit, ripe orange, pineapple aroma; a little harsh on first taste, but long-lasting smooth aftertaste with equal parts sugar and bitter.

_angst_ (2772) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours murky orangish brown with a small frothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small sticky trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and malty with caramel, grapefruit juice, moist grass, pine needles, lemon zest and alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, fruity and malty with sweet dark bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, pine needles, moist grass, orange zest, lemon zest, soil and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky sweet, oily bitter, slightly astringent, slightly boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter, tiny fruity and malty with caramel, grapefruit juice, moist grass, pine needles, resin, lemon zest and alcohol. Way too sticky for me...
