PhillyCraft (3631) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2012
On tap at the brewery, for the 5th ann party. Fresh as can be. Hazy golden pour with massive cream white head, tiny bubbles. Lacing was insane, and covered the entire glass. Multiple rings of soap. Aromas are grapefruit guts, pine resin, honey, goetz caramels, tangerine. Taste is the juciest and most dank hops. Really reminded me of younger or another ultra oily citrus hop bomb. Perfect bittering in finish. Unbelievable.

22 oz. bottle from notes. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has a nice combination of moderately sweet malt and fresh citrus hops. A little hint of pine and other fruits round out the nose. The flavor has a wonderful balance to it. A nice caramel and crystal malt base works in combination with the citrus flavors that leads to a nice hoppy bitter finish. Medium/full bodied IIPA.

Bamsen78 (3703) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle @ Vinterslaget på Østersøen, Sønderborg. Pours cloudy amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and hops, with some estery touches. Sweetish taste of malt, caramel, and fruit complemented by bitter, hoppy notes and maturation flavours. Slightly smoky and quite bitter aftertaste. Good. Very good. One of the best beers withing the style I have had.

MiP (13949) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle, 10.0%. Yeasty and slightly spicy aroma, hint of vanilla. Cloudy, almost muddy orange colour. OK off-white head, very creamy. The flavour is nicely hoppy, quite bitter, but not overly so. Has a little vanilla and tobacco. Quite mellow carbonation and a good, solid mouthfeel. Good hop and alcohol burn.

Thx! 650 ml. bottle sampled @ “Nog-een-half-jaar-tot-de-volgende-EBT”. Hazy orange, little white head. Sweetish orange nose, light pine, orange peel. Taste is bitter orange peel, herbal, very bitter, too much for me, floral, touch malt, warming. Too much bitter orange peel for my taste.
