Piney/minty IPA. Maybe a hint of nutmeg. Similar to GL Christmas Ale but nowhere near as good.

Aroma is floral, citrus, malt, light but piny. Appearance is hazy, amber golden, light tan head. Taste is booze, pine, citrus, malt. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, pine and booze aftertaste. Overall, this one is ok.

oh6gdx (25191) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Bottled@The Bishops Arms, Umeå. Hazy amber colour, small white head. ARoma is glue, fruits, grass and some crisp maltiness as well. Flavour is hoppy, some alcohol and grassy notes with also some mild wooden and sweet malty notes to it. Slightly too much on the boozy side of things.

thornecb (5448) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Pancake head with good retention recedes leaving scant lacing. Sourdough and grapefruit aromas. Soft with sweet pineapple and caramel upfront turning to hot resin and grapefruit before the lasting overripe banana finish. Meh.

rondphoto (3971) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 1, 2016
on tap @ Hebron BrewHaus / Hebron KY --- Clear deep maple amber color, ivory head that drops to a thick rim, splashes of lace. Taste is malt with mild caramel that scoots through mild carbonation to enough citrus hops to balance. This is good, but seems light for an imperial.

ajnepple (4994) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2016
12 oz single bottle (10%) from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Hazy orange appearance with sediment throughout. Aroma of resinous hops, light citrus zest and light grapefruit. Similar flavor, adding caramel malt, light toffee and light butterscotch. Medium to full body with a bitter finish. OK.

Cool_Bond (2293) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2016
Good fruity aroma. Fruity with a little bitter taste. Not so good bitterness that fills the mouth forever. To be so strong it was a little too bitter. But otherwise fine. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
