Blended together & placed in this vessel, the mission of our Gemini is to travel high & take passengers on a journey far into the heavens. 10.5% abv • 5.8ºL * 22° Plato

Pours a transparent dark golden liquid with tiny snowwhite head. Smell wonderfull of sweet bit vert bitter hops. Taste of sweet caramell, then turns bitter and finishes with a little spice. Viscous mouthfeel. A very good ale!

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - APR 3, 2013
Pours a deep golden liquid with a small somewhat disappointing offwhite head. Sweet and hoppy aroma of caramelmalts, peaches, pine and some yeast. Rich mouthfeel. Starts off with a sweet taste of bread, caramel and peaches. Switches and finishes with a more hoppy taste of pine and citrus. Superb.

Bottle from Trembling Madness. Hazy amber coloured with sweet orange marmalade and slight burnt toffee flavours, warming spicy red fruit, oak, leather and fruitiness on the finish. A very nice Barley Wine.

JStax (2853) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a nice froth of white foam. Aroma is a hefty herbal and piny note. Tastes more malt forward than the aroma indicated. Maybe this is an older bottle. I can’t find the bottling date. Very carbonated.

Tastes like a double IPA. Aroma is citrus and fruit. Taste is hops with a huge wallop of hop. Intense as hell!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Itzjerm (1155) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2013
1 year after bottling. Nice mild hop aroma, very obvious very enjoyable. Taste is a combination of sweetness and earthy hops. Nothing bitter here. A very drinkable brew. Very very good like most Southern tier brews. The head is perfect really long lasting and correct retention. Nice mouth feel...proud I found this one. Flavors are pinapple and earthy hop bitteness. A bit cloudy but countred by great head.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a more or less clear one, dark golden in color and with a small, white head on top. Piney, grapefruity aroma with a lot of malty sweetness. Quite sweet on the palate, full-bodied and with a little warmth. Bitter.flavor, both initially and in the end. Nice carbonation too. Pine cones, caramel sweetness and some citrus in the flavor. Bitterness, citrus and pine cones blend nicely with the maltyness in the end. Nice. 130119

Bottle 650ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape and pine. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a sweet fruity and bitter finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
