DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, - DEC 20, 2012
Full balanced long lingering flavours of hops over a perfect balancing middle of pale malts. Citrus and sweet grass, hints aromatic pine. Pale tree fruit.

Karol (507) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 14, 2014
Bottled. Bitter floral alcohol aroma, no citurs or any exotic fruit. Color is clear copper. Taste is good. Bitter hops, alcohol warming, hoppy longlasting finish. Initial sweet malt transforms to bitterness. Nice, I like this change. Overall good, but I prefer BrewDog’s hardcore IPA.

dreamflower (478) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle shared with northropfrye. I’m not feeling this beer. Lovely apricot appearance. But the aroma, taste and palate all are falling flat for me. There’s a bitterness there but it’s not an interesting refreshing bitterness it’s more of a dull flat bitterness. I guess me and this beer are not meant to be.

northropfrye (1944) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Dark orange/peach body, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Nice grainy malt aroma. Taste is iced tea, hops and malts. Nice double IPA.

uruha (2) - JAPAN - APR 12, 2014 does not count
Rich malt body, hard-hitting hop’s aroma, I think Nøgne Ø is very favorite beer of Japanese !!!

boxofrane (1872) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2014
Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours fairly clear orange with a small white head. The aroma has big grapefruit, rind, some piney notes. The taste is very sweet orange and grapefruit, slight bitterness.

DialSquare (2308) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
500ml bottle from Proof. Hazy orange pour with a big off-white head and strong retention. Aroma is warm fruit, apricot, resin, caramel. Tastes are floral, peach, nutty, earthy, grapefruit, wood, little toasty. Creamy medium palate. Even bitterness. English ale tea vibe. Very well constructed, but more of a one time sipper for my tastes.

MichaelAwesome (2970) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Unausgewogen und nicht gerade ausbalanciert. Etwas derb in der Bitterkeit, dazu grasig mit Limetten und etwas Mango. Irgendwie nicht so richtig, aber dennoch mit Ansätzen.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 6, 2014
Deutlich fruchtiger Hopfenantrunk, im dem vor allem Mango- und Limettennoten vorhanden sind. Grasig süß, weiterhin sehr hopfig. Herb bitter, klebrig, nicht ganz ausgewogen. 9/12/7/10/11/11

McTapps (2965) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - APR 5, 2014
Bottle from trade with Meilby - many thanks to you, Kenni! The beer pours out of the bottle in a cloudy golden colour with steady airy head and crisp body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and citrus. Taste of aromatic hops, thyme, spruce, citrus, light malt and cookies. Dry-bitter finish. Highly enjoyable.

Cuso (3791) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle from Bottle Park, Bratislava. Unclear orange color with medium off0white head. Strong hoppy aroma with malty background. Solid malty background followed by nice hoppy kick with Centennial hops. Alcohol is recognizable in pleasant way. Tasty.
