500ml bottle. Pours very lively with a large thick foamy head. The Smell is standard for ipa but the palate is thick and velvety. The taste is hoppy but not overly so leading a very drinkable ipa. Grapefruit is the most noticable flavour note. This is a high quality brew and the alcohol content is very well masked by the flavour.

Aroma is yeast, citrus, complex tropical fruit and a hint of hop resin. The flavor is citrus, fruit, grapefruit, light pine needles, hop resin, malts and a very tangy/bitter finish.

beerfest5 (1199) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 29, 2014
750mL bottle poured into a tulip, interesting deep orange to brown color with a bright white head. Big citrus(duh) aroma of freshly cut oranges or I guess tangerines based on the label, some tropical fruit and maybe some ginger in there. Taste is mostly tangerine citrus, some grapefruit and mandarin oranges, overcuts any genuine hop flavour. Overall an interesting idea that I would think would be more popular, but not something I would go back to.

Well, sometimes you just shouldn´t drink when you are sick lying in your bed. This one is definitely high quality but offered me just bitterness, some old plums and a bit of skunk towards the end. My fault to try that one the wrongest time you can imagine.

McTapps (5040) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from trade with Meilby - thank you, Kenni. The beer has got a hazy milky dark brown colour with an steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of hops, malt, barley, licorice and pine forrest - wonderful! Taste of intense hops, barley, pine, woods, soap, wine, spruce and citrus fruits. Finishes off like a big lemon tree full of sweet and ripe lemons, combined with some dry spruce character. Big beer! Fully enjoyed it.

Reddish-Orange Pour with big orange-tan head. Resiny Perfumed Citrus Nose. Bitter Resiny front, medium body with an interesting texture and Oily slightly malty yet sourish soft finish. expected because of the bergamot and other added ingredients Pleasant Beer interesting texture and palate. Interesting use of ingredients but similar to many of the Stone one-offs its a bit much!

Tsekouratos (443) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - OCT 26, 2014
Dark orange color, very hazy, with a huge thick white head. Hopy aromas of tangerine, citrus, some orange, maybe some spices. Bitter taste with citrus, lemon, orange, mango, tangerine, some spicy notes from the rye, and maybe some dankness. Nice aftertaste, long. Body was medium but carbonation was a bit too high! Still a nice brew!

Bottle pour dark brown copper with thick tan head. Nose mostly dank hop and caramel malt. Faint citrus. Taste grapefruit bite up front then floral sweetness. I get some of the mandrian then the dank hop returns mid palate

Bov (10089) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 18, 2014
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - fully cloudy brown beer under a long lasting beige foam; solid hoppy aroma of resin, mandarines and black berries; full-bodied, some swetness, tasty and fairly bitter; light dry and with a long fruity hoppy finish (tangerines, berries and citrus) - superb

Dark reddish brown body with loads of sediment and off white head. I assume this is not a fresh bottle but I can’t find the bottling date anywhere. Warm citrus hop aroma, also nice breadiness. Taste is a touch of bitter grapefruit, lime, with a very smooth palate. Would like to try this again fresher, as it was quite nice even with this old bottle.
