A nice IPA. Pours kind of an ugly brown with sediment... The nogne way. Aromas of caramel, pine, and orange. Flavors are sweet and caramel forward at first then a balanced and lasting bitterness finishes it off. Nice.

Bomber. Caramel brown and opaque with a tan head. Visually this could pass for a brown. A pleasant aroma of citrus and floral with passion fruit. The flavor brings those out and bitterness is a bit above moderate. Lime is tasted and it brings a unique element. There is a heavy dose of caramel but the fruit is in charge. Some mint and spice. This is borderline imperial and perhaps should be in that category. The finish was a little hot but it was also flavorful and had a bit of an attitude.

4oz pour at Churchkey’s Nogne O Tap Takeover. Pours a clear, burnt orange with some cream colored head. Smells like homebrew, heavy citrus peel, dusty, musty, tangerine, some grapefruit pulp. Flavor is similar, lightly sweet, lightly tart, musty, grassy, orange, grapefruit, a little curry powder. Creamy and astringent finish. Yes, both creamy and astringent. Very odd. Reminds me too much of average home brew.

Draft at Churchkey for a meet the brewer event. Poured a cloudy dark orange color with a small white head. Aroma was some nice citrus orange notes with some light toasted malts. Flavor was some light malt notes, with touches of citrus hops. Juicy.

500ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Poured into my DFH IPA glass. Pours a mostly clear red orange amber color, pretty dark. Very big khaki head that just sort of stays put for a bit, be sure to pour this one slowly. Fades to a thin reasonable after about ten minutes. Leaves plenty, thicker lace. Lots of chunky dark particles in the final pour. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of slick. Initially, the nose is kind of offputting, caramel malt, and it’s kind of sweet up front. But the flavor is pretty interesting. Dark fruity, juicy, some tangerine juice comes through. Kind of spicy. Get some of the kaffier lime. It’s a cool, interesting combo but is more a fruit beer than an IPA. I’d like to see a little more hop taste and aromatics, not much of that here. Maybe some spicy earthy hop character. No date on the bottles, of course. Interesting, tasty stuff, though, if looked at as a sort of hoppy strong ale with fruit. A lot of sweet maltiness holds it back for me.

(backlog Mondial de la bière, Mulhouse 09/2013). Bitter mandarine rind, nice mellow near-biscuit malt body. Slight pine, lime and grapefruit rind. Delicate and delicious, alas with an unsessionable price tag.

calm_dreamer (158) - GREECE - FEB 9, 2014
Cloudy body with a finger of lasting thick foam. Aroma of tangerine, fruit, citrus, some general hops and rye. Taste of oats, the spice of rye and full of tangerine. Lasting aftertaste, overcarbonated.
