beerladadrian (23) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 3, 2015
Bought from Brothers Beer. Pours a rather amber colour, interesting for an IPA to say the least. A slight let down with this beer would be the finish, and an excessive amount of alcohol. Not overly pleasant to drink to be honest. Up your game Maelstrom.

thewolf (11382) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle, bought @Havnens Vin og Tobak, Vejle. Pours murky dark amber with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma has sweet malts, lemon zest, bergamot, kongen af Danmark,light cheese. Lowish carbonation, fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, heather notes, lemon. Softly vinious. Some cheesy notes. Average.

beer-yum (767) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 17, 2015
Am impressive combination of old and new world ingredients that manages to make a strong beer seem way less so. This is both a good and a bad thing. It’s good to drink - but easy (and dangerous) to have too much
