Pours a hazy orangeish brown. Herbal, resiny aromas of citrus and fresh hops. Same in the mouth, lots of hop aroma but not too much aggressive bitterness. Nicely balanced... and strong in the ways of the force. Quite a lot of viscosity in the mouth. I’m no IPA expert, but this was tasty.

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.

bartlebier (1162) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2014
(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 (140) - 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.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Dark, hazy toffee colored pour. Big slight off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma of flowers. A slight citrus and malt aroma in there as well. A very malty flavor. Some lemons mixed in. But mostly just malt. Not too bitter. Pretty damn good.
