Reimer96 (1201) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2014
Pours a clear orangish amber with a big white head that dissipates quickly but leaves lots of lacing down the glass. Aroma of pine needles, resin, grapefruit, sweet pale malts and some soft floral esthers in the background. Taste is pine, resin, bitter grapefruit balanced well with caramel tasting malts. Nice dry finish and well balanced ipa that shows the Amarillo off nicely.

HKdIPA (228) - HONG KONG - JAN 8, 2014
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Bottle from Kaohsiung HSR station. Aroma is citrus and caramel, but herbal. Taste is hoppy but this series of single hops from Mikkeller (vs other series from same brewery) doesn't seem to let hop characteristics through as much. Tastes sharp, bitter, juicy and slightly sweet. Crisp dry bitter finish. Not bad but a bit disappointing vs previous single hops and other Amarillo-dominant IPAs.

zenkis (567) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours intense deep amber with rich off-white top, light to medium lasing. Aroma - sweet, caramel with pine. Indeed IPA cause malt-caramel profile is only background for hops bitter to shine. Medium body, medium thick, watery texture, dry finish, pleasant, lasting bitter aftertaste.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2013
From notes. Poured cloudy, with an orange color and a creamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus peel, caramel, yeast, mango and resin. Fairly bitter with well balanced sweetness. Nothing too complex, but still a good one.
