Cunningham (4918) - Halden, - MAR 10, 2012
Hazy golden colour with a fine white head. What a lovely hoppy nose. Fresh and a mild richness. Lovely fresh and mixed flavour. A bit fruity, lots of citric hops, mild malt sweetness and some spices. Lovely IPA ;-)
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Halden, Norway. Batch #671

skortila (4622) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2014
Bottled. 30cl sample. The aroma has citrus, some spicy tones, bit earthy and leather yeast tones. Hazy, yellow coloured with a big foamy, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has biscuity malts. citric fruity hoppiness and earthy yeast. Medium bodied. Medium+ carbonation. Medium-heavy on the stomach. Not an easy drinker, but quite refreshing. Enjoyed it.

Peter_L (892) - SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
Massiv doft av tallkåda, granskott och grape. Inte mycket kryddor i denna saison. Mer en IPA. Men mixen funkar. Heja Nögne!

VDuquerroux (400) - Airvault, FRANCE - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle, 50cL. Home. Batch 901. October 28th 2014. Best before December 14th 2014 ! A brown orange opaque beer with a big white creamy head. Good retention. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, smoke, herbs and biscuit. Medium sweet and medium refreshing bitter. Medium body, silky texture, good to average carbonation, dry bitter finish. Overall, a great colorful strange "saison". A mix of style. Why not !

martin00sr (882) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2014
Hazy orange, thick and frothy white head. Fruity citrus, mild but clear horse aroma. Similar flavour, juicy with a good, sweetish and malty background. Dry and bitter with smooth, fluffy mouthfeel.

Bière qui sent très fort le houblon. Le goût est aussi très houblonné. typique d’une IPA. L’arrière goût n’est pas agressif mais présent.
