Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Thanks to Tanya? Aroma is orange peel, resinous hop, caramel malts. Quite a lot of hot alcohol in the nose. Bright orange coloured pour with some haze and a loose fleeting white head. Flavour is harsh grapefruit bitterness, caramel malts, hot alcohol, slight skunk. Palate is chewy and resinous, with a harsh bitterness in the finish.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Kernel rotbox treat. Hazy gold beer, tidy off white head. Light dry malt, semi sweet. Still a fair amount of hop bitterness here. Orange peel as well as bitter pine. Light dry finish shows some oxidisation. All things considered, it has survived well.

minutemat (1879) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle @ Chriso May 14 tasting. Pours amber, bitter prickly orange taste, fruity yeast, some spice and malts. I sense this is perhaps not in peak condition.

Scopey (7406) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
From the Kernel Rotbox. Care of Leighton. It pours amber with a small white head. The nose is fresh, stewed orange, tangerine, must, sherbet and candy. The taste is bitter, watery, orange peel, must, alcohol, toasty, spice, resin, alcohol, orange muffin and dirt with a hot, citric finish. Medium+ body an fine carbonation. You are past it old timer....

Ragnampiza (523) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - DEC 8, 2013
bottle from Wild Hops served in a snifter. Pours a dark hazy orange with a small non-persistent off white head. Powerful aroma of tropical fruits, grapefuit, mango, light caramel malts and pine needles. Mild alchool perception. Strong bitterness and resiny presence, but not at all overwhelming. The alchool is well hidden. Long bitter aftertaste. Medium body, medium carbonation and creamy texture. Textbook example of a DIPA, very nice!

bobroman (472) - Torun, POLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Pleasant fruity aroma. Short durable head with impressive lacing. Hazy light golden body. Mostly fruity sweetness in taste with extreme hoppy bitterness.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como; bb 310514 L2013
Cloudy light amber color with medium sized creamy head. The aroma is only partially fruity, it’s mostly earthy, animal; there are also some soft hop resins. Good body strength; the malt flavor has accents of caramel and toffee, and it’s moderately sweet; strong bitterness, nothing close to the theoretical 409 IBU, but the hop is tired, not able to propose freshness; there is some orange jam; the hop resins tickle the tongue in the long final.
A good beer overall, but it seems an exercise that didn’t get to the highest result.

Theydon_Bois (9930) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, 26/09/13. Hazed golden amber with a good sized frothy white head. Nose carries fairly aggressive hop notes, caramel malt, bitter grapefruit, grass, citric fruits. Tate comprises bitter grapefruit, candied sugars, rich mango, orange pith, bitter hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, agressive hop bitternes in the finish. Decent DIPA.
