UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 Draught at Europen Beer Festival, Copenhagen. Cloudy pale orange, minimal head. Orangey nose with some vanilla. Sweet and dense with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Orangey hops is the foremost feature, but it’s backed by caramel and yeast. Long bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small offwhite head. Hazy orange body. Orangey (tangerine, perhaps?) citric hop aroma, maybe a little one- dimensional. Dry-sweetish sharpish orangey citric hop taste. Real orangey edge makes the beer refreshing. Could have had more depth, though. (0.1l taster draft at EBF’08.)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[on tap at EBF 2008[
IPA aroma with lots of tangerine (surprise, surprise): citrusy pine hops, soda crackers, fresh tangerine juice. Hazy light brownish-orange with almost a complete, thin cover. Salty from the high hopping balanced very well with gentle tangerine. Notes of pine and caramel. Medium body, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours lightly muddy yellow with a small, creamy, white film head. Fruity aroma, oranges and tangerine. Good hoppiness spliced with the fruit. Great, soft mouthfeel, lowish carbonation. Flavour starts off relatively fruity with tangerine dominating. Then some biscuity malts, before hitting with a good hoppiness, flowery and very bitter. Technically, were impressive.
