AdamJackson (2786) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Dark orange. Big head. Very pine forward and lots of sweetness on the nose. Very sweet but honestly more like a candy and there’s a very clear orange and strawberry hard candy taste. Very crisp mouthfeel with only a lingering sweet finish

fantti (720) - FINLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Kaatuu tulppaaniin kuparin oranssina ja kirkkaana, 1,5 sormen paksuisella vaahdolla, joka jättää keskiverrosti pitsiä. Tuoksusta löytyy pääasiassa hapanta marjaisuutta ja puumaisuutta, jonkin verran mausteisuutta ja karamellisuuttakin on läsnä. Maku on jälleen marjaisuuden ja puumaisuuden dominoiva. Hapan marjaisuus iskee heti alkuun, jonka jälkeen puumaisuus ottaa vastuun jääden kielelle. Makeutta ja mausteisuuttakin on alkumaun puolella. Suutuntuma on nipistelevän humaloitu ja suht hiilihappoinen tehden vaikutelmasta melko raikkaan. Hieman vaisu IPA, jossa hapan marjaisuus ja puumaisuus pääosassa. Jättää hieman sekavan kuvan.

stefannilssons (1485) - SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2014
Det här var riktigt juste, smaken var komplex med toner av bränt socker, syra och torkat gräs. Kroppen var stabil och balansen justerad, slutsats; komplex och god sak.

kerenmk (2519) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle at Trollekelder. Hazy brown. Fresh hops, pineapple aroma, mild hoppy bitterness with some tropical fruit sweet undertones. Full body, long hoppy bitter finish that’s not too dry. Fun.

Grapefruity, resinous, bread, hay, minerals. Copper colour, medium beige head, lacing. Assertive bitterness, noticable sweetness, grapefruity, resinous, not a lot of tropical fruits. Medium body, average carbonation, sweetish finish. Solid, but a tad too sweet.
