Cirrhosis (1208) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 21, 2013
Amber body with a massive fluffy white cap that wont go down. Smell is making me drool, huge hops, astringent, peach, sweet caramel appears at the back of the nose. Taste is in your face strong but remains highly drinkable. Peachy hops, resin, and a wicked awesome harshness dominate the flavour. Almost taste vanilla but it seems fake. Almost to boozy but still acceptable. I like this beer but I’m not in love with it.

teddybeer (2224) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Orangish colour with a medium white head. Aroma has notes of orange, slightly citrus and floral with a good present of malts. Flavor is fruity, notes of orange peel and grapefruit, good bitterness with good duration but no astringent. The final has a decent bitterness with good duration and citrus notes.

Niall73 (1774) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle from Cervazorama Madrid. Pours a hazy orangy amber colour with a slightly off white head. Aroma is herby, honey, grass, funky veg, a bit of tangerine. Medium to full body, fine medium carbonation. A touch powdery on the palate. Caramel, quite sticky, a little veg, a bit of grapefruit, pretty dry and bitter. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

laiti (5654) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
75 cl bottle @ PBF VIII, BBE 14.11.2017
Vertical with the other one
Aroma is somewhat heavy with fruity notes, caramel and some biscuits. Flavour is also fruity with some hops, gluey notes, caramel and biscuits. Alcohol is present but it doesn’t disturb. Nice, although doesn’t reach the awesomeness of Boogoop. Perhaps it could as fresh. And still this is better than 3F version since this is more fruity.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
750 ml bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours a dark copper colour with an amber hue with a white lacy head. Aroma of sweet caramel, syrup, strong floral hops and citrus. Flavour is rich with caramel, strong floral hops, some sweet syrup, grass and strong rich grapefruity notes. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a thick, floral, rich, citrusy finish. Great stuff, currently more like a DIPA than a barley wine.

oh6gdx (20308) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Bottled@PBF VIII. ORange colour, big beige head, that leaves haze. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, quite bready notes. Flavour is fruits, some caramel, toffee and mild toffee. Not very fresh.

tiong (3746) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
750ml bottle @ PBF 2013

Vertical with Three Floyds version - Pours dark orange with a foamy head. Aroma of crisp malts, grassy hops, citrus, fruits and lemon. Taste is malty, hoppy and bitter with notes of crisp notes, grass, citrus, lemon and syrup. Finish is malty, fruity and sweetish with notes of crisp fruitiness. Okay, quite hoppy and bitter, almost like a double IPA. Maltier and heavier than the Three Floyds version, the aroma is notably different.

Pours clear orange color with a small head. Aroma of hops, some sweet fruits, resin and some caramel, faint rice on the background. Flavor of resiny hops, sweet fruits, caramel malts and some alcohol. Quite heavy, some mild sweetness and alcohol throughput. Decent brew with a nice hop profile.
