SlackerMads (1410) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown with a medium sized diminishing tan head. Citrus, wood, caramel, light dusty, dark bread, dry flowers. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Pretty soft on the palate and goes down easy. Somewhat short finish but with light lingering bitterness. Pleasant.

Shark_Pants (146) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2014
Pours murky brown into a de Struise tulip, with small, non-persistent beige head. Aromas of malts, grapefruit, toffee. Taste is quite gentle. Strong malt backbone, light citrusy hops and a lingering sweetness. More like a sweeter amber ale than an IPA but quite enjoyable nonetheless.

ST247 (351) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle @Bierhuyske. Pours brown with off white head. Herbal, bit metallic aroma. Taste is sweet, hint of caramel ? Not really what I expected. No real bitterness.

CPH2200 (262) - DENMARK - MAY 16, 2014
33 cl bottle 7.0 % abv 2010 vintage. Cloudy light brownish color. Sweet and bitter but not very hoppy. Oily dry mouthfeel. Not bad despite 4 years in the cellar.

Beerhunter111 (6773) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
Trübes dunkeloranges Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig, fruchtig, herb, tropische Früchte, bitter, genauso ist auch der Geschmack.

tricksta_p (872) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2014
Aroma of malts, caramel, fruits, yeast, aromatic hops. Flavour is malty caramel sweetness, quite yeasty, with some hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Not your typical IPA, more malty caramel oriented than tropical fruit hoppiness.
