Dogbrick (10879) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2016
This brew is a hazy brownish-amber color with a medium thick light beige head that recedes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of rye malt, hops and fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, resiny hops and fruit. The finish is rye malt up front with a piney hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

bartlebier (3213) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2015
12oz bb:N/A, among idiosynkrasieís bounteous bottlebox. Smells of that typical high-octane crystal malts-go-sweet-orange-jam of many US-DIPAs, quince marmelade and its fruity damp resins. About the same in taste, mostly sweet preserved oranges or orange-shaped candy, dryish quince jam and beetroot sugar with a good coating of resinous bitterness. Drinks astoundly easy, without real abv heat or burn, while not really owning up to its 10% potential.

Strong marigold, pencil shaving, and pine needle nose. Cloudy rust, thin yellow head. Intense marigold and pencil shavings, overripe orange underneath and toward the end. Full body, moderate carbonation, boozy. Hop forward and strong, not as malty or balanced as I hoped.

12 oz. bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big citrus , caramel, brown sugar, some resin, a bit boozy and the flavors donít play all that well together, just ok.

olio (8793) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2015
355 ml bottle.
Pours dark amber color with a small head. Sweetish apricot and orange on the nose, resinous hops, pine, mild caramel notes, faint bread and subtle alcohol. Bitter malts and sweet ripe fruits on the flavor, lots of resinous hops, mild berry-like residue on the background. Full-bodied, kind of aggressive and still quite balanced. Very good.
