wedgie9 (2638) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Tasted on 8/6/12 from a 500mL bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours a surprisingly light yellow/orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, sticky, and messy lace. The nose is very light bread malt with a ton of intense floral, citrus, and tropical fruit hops. The flavor is really dominated by the intense hops that are nicely bitter, floral, with tropical fruits and citrus. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long nicely bitter and complex hops finish.

Calda, poco carbonata, spigolosa per l’amaro. Equilibrata ed armonica

Hanoi (849) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2016 Big bottle for a surprisingly low abv imperial IPA. Nose is mango, caramel, pineapple, lychee hint of strawberry slight cream. Taste is very malty for the style leading to tropical fruit, soft fruit, caramel, dank, little resin.It?s not a terrible beer, but it?s a bland example of a style with some real heavyweights.

labeerinthum (567) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 6, 2016
Bottiglia. Balza subito all’occhio molto lievito depositato sul fondo della bottiglia e qualcosa anche in sospensione. Il gusto al naso va a spiaggiarsi sul luppolo, fortemente presente e in grado di annullare quasi ogni altro sentore. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta. Le bollicine sono medie. La carbonazione è abbondante. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Il perlage ha bollicine medio-fini. La carbonazione è abbondante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. Il corpo è strutturato non pesante. L’amaro è deciso, anzi carico. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole per una birra che ha una sua personalità. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate. Il finale è amarognolo, lungo e complesso. Il retrogusto è intenso e persistente. L’aroma in bocca riporta percezioni di caramello, miele, fieno, cereali, frutta secca, arrostito, resina, agrumi, pompelmo, alcol presente, lievito, mango e biscotto.

Bottle at home from Beer gonzo split with Sarah. An attractive pale yellow / straw coloured pour with a lively frothy white head. Aroma is lovely fresh mixed fruits, canned pineapple, floral citrus, straw. Flavour is composed of raw pale grains, straw , pineapple and pithy lemon citrus, little grassy. Palate is grainy , highish carbonation, crisp finish. Assertive pithy drying hop bitterness. Really quite punchy. Really quaffable.

On tap at Schouskjelleren, february 12th 2016. Hazy golden body, small but lasting white head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, flowery, peach, with a mild caramel character. Taste of orange lemonade, grapefruit and pineapple - this one can’t be much older than a couple of weeks maximum. Pleasant dry bitterness, bringing along a juicy and fresh aftertaste. Quite nice!
