crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 5, 2014
From a can. A orange amber body with a white head that had mild retention and no lace. Aroma had a strong mango presence upfront. Pine, citronella and caramel malts. Flavor had good hop flavor. Well balanced between tropical fruits and pine flavors. Grapefruit was mild. Some caramel malts and the alcohol was a warming presence in the finish. Otherwise it was well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skipping its baby brother if you can call it that (Resin) and going straight to 11. The nose is massive with the hop aroma of fruits and pine just grabbing you. The pallet is equally as big and delivers as it promised, a big IPA. The scary thing is how smooth it is and easy it goes down.

Burk från SB. Klar, guldig med gräddigt krämvitt skum. Söt och humlepackad i doften. Nästan lite barley wine-känsla med nötiga och knäckiga inslag. Även granskott och citrus. Något större kropp. Lätt spritig. Apelsinmarmelad, citrus, lite pilsnermalt. Något tunn smakmässigt. Sådär.

On tap at Armakeggon 2016. Pretty much what it says on the label, huge citrus flavours and a big resin finish.

Hopmaestro (1281) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2016
Aroma is citrus and oranges with an apparent sweet malty presence. Slight resin on here as well. Taste is really sweet and malty at first. A lot of sweet fruits as well, like ripe pineapples and sunkissed mangos. I catch some kind of honey sweetness as well. In the end there’s a big alcoholic sting on the tip of the tongue with a really citrusy finish. A tad too boozy to be really top notch, but still tasty and I got what I expected, a kick in the ass.

larsniclas (6690) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2016
Canned from Systembolaget Clear golden with a medium head. Resinous and alcoholic in both aroma and flavour. Medium bitterness with to much alcohol.

mzaar (2796) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2016
Burk. Orange öl med ett litet vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av apelsin, alkohol, grapefrukt och tall. Alldeles för mycket alkohol i munnen för min smak. Lite som att suga på frukterna i en punchbål - gott till en början, rätt tröttsamt i längden.

bookman10 (948) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Pours a clear copper-amber, with little by way of head. Aroma is marked by fruit and hops and booze. Flavor is also overly boozy, with some hops and fruit, but hidden under the alcohol. This could be good if it had a lot more balance, but as it is, it’s just too much booze and too little else.

RickFifty (1050) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2016
Amber color, tan head. Caramel nose, malty, fruity, grass, harsh hoppy, alcohol, hint of citrus. Sweet taste, caramel, alcohol, resin, bitter finish, hint of grapefruit, way too heavy and boozy. Full body, soft to average carbonation, warming alcohol.

olsvammel (5976) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2016
Can from Systembolaget. Hoppy smell, with grape and pine. Also a bit boozy. Similar taste, resinous hops. Sweet maltbase. Slightly too boozy.

tmongoose (2219) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 14, 2016
draft that was somewhat hazy lighter amber color with white head. medium malt, caramel and a slew of hops, some citrus and some pine mix. the flavor was quite flavorful and evenly balanced. nice medium malt base to hold all these hops. lots of citrus and pine in the flavor. medium carbonation. overall quite delightful. the alcohol comes on the end but is muted by the other ingredients.
