Bottle. 33cl. Pours copper with gorgeous foam of high retention. Large yeasts aggregates floating around are a bit disturbing though. Nose of citrus, grass and pine needles. Taste is very enjoyable with highlights of malty sweeteness filling the well balanced hops bittereness. Low carbonation, sticky texture. Aftertaste of spice, very cool. Overall, a very nice job.

adasko (527) - Poznan, POLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Świetny słodki aromat dojrzałych mango, papai i brzoskwini, z delikatną nutą limonkową. Piwo mętne, duże grudki drożdży, pomimo dość delikatnego nalewania. Barwa bursztynowa, niezła piana ładnie okleja szkło. Piwo dość nisko wysycone. Sprawia wrażenie dość gładkiego.W smaku wyczuwalna alkoholowa goryczka, która nieco szczypie w ustach. Ogólnie alkohol raczej kiepsko schowany. Zdecydowanie brakuje chmielowej goryczki jak na Double IPA. Piwo słodkie w smaku, przewijają się takie bardzo mocno dojrzałe owoce. Brakuje nieco kopnięcia temu piwu.

veceo (652) - CROATIA - DEC 6, 2014
Cloudy deep amber color, average sized off white head. Aroma is sugary and boozy with some malt, herbs, pine, tropical fruits and blueberries underneath. Taste is very similar. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Balanced bittersweet taste. The touch of blueberries is very interesting but this sugary and boozy aroma feels kinda cheap.

Scottishchris (251) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy Amber, cream head. Marmalade and resin nose. Mouth puckering bitterness balanced with underlying caramel sweetness. Hops and pine. Tasty.

jamestulloch (1588) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy amber body with a thick off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of fig, orange and caramel biscuit. Flavour of blood orange, parma violets and herbs. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. Very hoppy - it’s just a pity Centennial is used so liberally, as the parma violet dominates.

guzgorog (346) - FRANCE - DEC 1, 2014
Couleur orangée foncée très trouble, peu de mousse beige, gros dépôt. Nez très fruité : pin des vosges, orange, mandarine, raisin, caramel. Attaque très amère, amertume bien persistente. La première bouche est pamplemousse et la résine, ensuite viennent les autres agrumes : oranges et mandarine, puis l’alcool, le miel et le caramel. Très bonne longueur, bouche très évolutive, très bon !

__Rb81 (283) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle at home (bottled 02/09/14). Pours a dark amber with a white head. Aroma of hops, malty caramel, floral, piney hops, fruity too, tangerine, orange. Taste is sweet malty with hoppy bitterness, floral, bit herbal piney, bitter herbal hoppy aftertaste. Not bad.

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from World Beer Market. Aroma is boozy, sharp citrus fruitiness, grapefruit, plasticine! Taste is nice, initial light citrus bitterness, sweet and boozy, malty, and then a hop burn at the end. Minerals. I like this as it slowly reveals it’s stuff rather than slaps you in the face. Something a little creamy about the finish too later on down. Pineapple, keep finding that in beers at the moment. I like it!

Bosskie (459) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2014
Nice copper colour, lots of yeast chunks, weak white head, opaque. Citric smell, subtle cherry, hint of mandarin, some leather. Taste is fiece bitterness with surprising sweet undertone. Finish is astringent, lots of grapefruit peels, almost numbing the lips. Refreshing.
