Pours hazy brownish amber with a finger of frothy thick white head. Aroma of resin, mango, peach, grapefruit. Taste is light caramel sweet then big resin bitter, yet balanced. Body is medium and creamy-oily with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear yellow color, small white head. Cat pissy, slightly fruity, apricot hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Grapefruity flavor, some alcohol but doesn’t feel like 8.3%. Corn and honey softens the flavors.

Keg at CBC Clerkenwell. It pours a cloudy copper colour with a thick white head. Aroma is grassy and hoppy. Taste has notes of citrus and pine with a bit of caramel smoothness. Long bitter finish. Good

Bottle, thanks Ben! Pours hazy orange with a medium white creamy head that dissipates slowly and laces well. Aroma is citrusy, dank, grapefruit, pine resin. Flavor is much the same, light sweet, not really any honey notes for me, dank and resinous with medium bitterness overall. Bit of harshness on the finish. Medium body, resinous. Pretty tasty.

Keg at The Nags Head in Reading. This is beer equivalent of opium. Dreamy long bitter hops on a sweet lavender honey malt. Excellent.

Bottle. Amber with white head. Not much aroma, orange, pine and corn. Taste of orange and little pine. Some alcohol kicking about. Quite bitter. Alright, was expecting more

thewolf (11260) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2013
Tap @ Fermentoren, Cph. Pours clear golden with a small, staying, creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, hops, corn, candy, resin, "labre larver". Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of bitterness, mild sweetness, doughy, soft pine, resin. Lingering, heavy bitterness. Very drinkable.

McNeillR (1328) - SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Hazy uncharming shade of amber, decent nicely dispating head. Fairly boozy or sweet, dry and rusky nose - sweet boozy burn already. Deals in with a thick limey sweetness, breaks up what could be a caramel malt stomp over the palate. Unamped hops, lovely tinselly sweetness creeps in. Finish is neon bright booze, linger is cooling and sweet. Takes a wee bit to get through the gears on this, feels like a meal in itself - an impressive sideswipe on DIPA.

Bottle, Beets, Edinburgh

Fin (7698) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle picked up directly from Siren Brewery, Finchampstead; Berkshire, 20th November 2013 consumed at home Friday 22nd November 2013 Hazy amber with a slight orange murkiness, off white head atop. I get a little bit of fresh pineapple on the nose, rich nose I think I can also detect a little alcohol and sweetness (probably honey) Taste is great, again this is very soft, velvety and almost carresses the tongue. Tons of flavour rich with a good bittersweet balance, alcohol is present. Hoppy but fruitiness is bordering on the tropical but with a slight harsh little burn from the alcohol in fact one of the few things that is a negative. A jolly nice beer, really good but I had the QIPA (again) and the Ryseing Tide last note both superb beers. A8 A3 T8 P5 Ov14 3.8

Draught at Hamnmästaren. Hazy golden coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of hops, pine needles and grass. Sweet and fruity flavour of hops, pine needles, caramel and citrus peel. Hoppy finish.
