500ml bottle thanks very much to madmitch76 for throwing this beauty in as a bonus. 2008 harvest. Pours a hazy orange with yellow hue, medium off white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, slight floral, pine, grass, and yeast. I started drinking this before I read the description, so first tastes were a bit of a shock. Once I read the label, I realized exactly what I was drinking. This is quite a nice brew. Wet hopped, bottle conditioned with saison yeast, giving it a pretty unique character. Hop profile is very flavorful and enjoyable, slight tartness from the yeast, and a nice malt backbone for some balance. Mouthfeel is slightly slick and finishes slightly dry and bitter. Very nice.

Hanoi (834) - 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.

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.

mR_fr0g (9252) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2016
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!
