Stoned99 (1151) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
341ml bottle from trade with Hop Citizen. Aroma: caramel, earthy, grapefruits, shy citrus. Malt really up front. App: cloudy copper, medium off white frothy head, good lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, velvety and soft for the palate, light to medium sweetness, light moderate dry bitter finish. Overall: hmm. The aroma and the taste definitely disappointed me. I’m so more of a fruity hop forward fan than a malt forward or even balanced. Mouthfeel is pretty good though and drinkability is high. Just wish it was more fruity. Date was scratched out so no idea how fresh it really is. Disappointed again by FFF. On the bright side, the look and mouthfeel are really good. Just ok.

davidezdonz (287) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 8, 2016
A 12 fl oz. bottle bottled on March 31st 2016 and poured into a mini Mikkeller long stemmed tulip glass. It poured a clear copper colour with a one finger off white head that had decent retention and left nice lacing. Aromas a bit light but grapefruit and pine come through along with some caramel malt. Tastes of bitter citrus grapefruit, lemon and orange peel, sweet lemon tea, lightly sweetened tea, pine and caramel malt in the background. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall nice and well balanced. Good mix of bitter and sweet.

Guruhso (374) - Grindsted, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2016
Tap at mikkeller bar ; 3 floyds tap takeover. Hoppy aroma of citrus, tropical, pine, grapefruit and floral notes. Quite malty of caramel. The flavours starts heavy sweet but finish bitter with fairly long duration. The body is medium and the texture is juicy. A nice one...
