3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, no best-before or bootled-on date, but Iím guessing it ainít at its freshest state! Hazy Amber orange with a very lively off white head. Caramel malt, very fruity hop character (peaches, ripe mango) with spicy undertones. Still nice, even though itís malted out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UFO-riddled bottle, raising a tower of dense, fine, yellow head, slowly giving birth to orange gold-to-copper, very finely and lively carbonated, but strangely enough near clear beer. C-hop aroma, but also cookies, even liquorice. Exotic fruit syrup, rosewater concentrate - smelling pretty sweet. Toasted and hopbitter, but with a really syrupy-sweet undercurrent. Fruit dried fruit on cake, liquorice, bitter spices. Very slightly sticky, well-carbonated, light to medium bodied. Hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Somehow, it doesnít convince me - thereís just too much sweet malts for its intended purpose. Which does not make it a bad beer, mind!

330ml bottle shared with jeevan. Cheers! Pours murky orange, floaters, nice head and lacing though. Aromas of citrus and resin. Taste is bitter. One dimensional, but ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy amber color with a large head. Lots of resinous hops on the nose, caramel malts too, I would have guessed this as a DIPA from the aroma if tasted blind, some grapefruits, pine needles and grainy notes can be found too. Resinous hops again on the flavor, caramel, sweet fruity notes and wood. Strong carbonation, bitter malty finish. Lots of flavor here but somehow itís not that pleasant for me, maybe too resinous or something.

Bottle at home. High fluffy and long lasting white head. Hazy amber orange body. Dusty straw bisquit aroma. Mildly hopped and yet quite tasty orange lemon flavor with low carbonation and a surprisingly long finish. Well done.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 19.09.2013
Aroma has citrus, some resiny tones and caramel. Also some hops and fruits. Flavour has some plastic tones, gooseberry bush and fruity notes. Aroma was nice but flavour is bitter in a harsh way. Plastic notes take over at the end of the glass.
