Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of light caramel with floral and fruity hops. Slightly sweet flavor with caramel malt and lots of hop flavor (fruity, citrus). Nice bitter, dry finish.

Wow. Bottle pour in Xiamen, China. A surprisingly nice beer at the suggestion of the proprietor of the Beer Station in Xiamen. Hazy dark orange pour, almost brown. Big head with lots and lots of lacing on the glass. Big aroma of oranges and caramel. Delicious orange flavor with lots of caramel, but not a lot of the sweetness that many big IPAs suffer from. It has a perfect amount of sweetness, but not sweet., if that makes any sense. Medium oily mouthfeel. Dry bitter finish. This is a beer that gets better as you finish the glass. Some of them are great at first, but get tiring to finish. Lovely. Just fantastic. Please, can I have another.

Dark red with white head. Loads of floaties. Aroma is earth, grass, caramel, tropical fruit and spice. Slick and fruity palate. Aftertaste is dry, earthy, grass, caramel and lingering bitter hop finish. Overall: Excellent!

Kosmokrator (504) - ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Limpido color ramato con soffice cappello di saponosa schiuma biancastra. Aroma intenso e dolciastro con sentori di pesche sciroppate, luppolo, biscotto, fiori e toffee; gusto rotondo, pieno e ben bilanciato che riprende i profumi e si conclude con una luppolatura intensa. Corpo medio, effervescenza nella norma e struttura oleoso-vellutata. Molto buona e di grande carattere!

Couleur orange; mousse blanche (trop abondante; attention en versant); arômes de grapefruit; goût bien houblonné avec un peu de malt; les 8,5% d’alcool sont bien cachés; belle longue finale amère
