Cloudy light amber color; generous creamy head. Strong aroma, hoppy, fruity: peaches, citrus fruits; some cream too, a good touch of Citra; a sweaty touch too, later. Strong toffee flavor, some caramel, very moderate residual sweetness; the hop is very resiny, with strong bitterness, and some fruity presence, like bitter orange peel.
Quite fresh, well constructed, powerful but not cloying.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma is citrusy and piney with some grapefruit and a malty note. The flavor too is hop-driven, with some notes of malty sweetness in the back. Pine cones, grapefruit and a solid bitterness, leading to a lasting, grapefruit-ish and bitter finish. Full-bodied, dry and well carbonated. A wonderful beer, dangerously easy to drink, and sort of quenching too. 120511

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 Cask handpull at GBBF 2010. Gold/orange colour with thin bubbly head Quite sharp on the finish. Bit uncultured, almost medicinal herb on the finish. Bit much for me. Unbalanced hop juice. Couldn?t finish it. Re-rate Bottle at Craft Leighton birthday. Really good hoppy fresh harsh bitter finish but good.

Bottle shared at my birthday at CBC, London. Pours light hazy gold with a fine, white head. Lovely citrus hop aroma with lots of other tropical fruits. Great flavor, all pine, grapefruit, orange and hay. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly sticky, resinous finish with light pine and lemon rind. Solid DIPA. Very drinkable.
