Lothore (549) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a rusty orange color with a thick, 2 finger head which leaves lacing all the way down. S- Pine resin, caramel, wheat T- Lots of resiney pine, residual sweetness, breadiness, following by a deep lingering bitterness. M- Thick with medium / low carbonation. D- This is a great brew by FFF. A little too sweet for me but I suppose it needs to be to stand up to that wall of hops. I’d repeat.

Pours a slightly hazy golden. Thin white head. Aroma is slightly pine and malty caramel. Fairly sweet. Lots of caramel. I like this a lot. But is isn't a west coast dipa. Finishes sweet. Nice beer.

Holmen1 (2375) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Fra fad på Mikkeller&Friends: intet svart hjerte her, men en dyp gylden farge med et lett skum i disse litt jålete Mikkeller-glassene. Aner jeg et snev av røykmalt i aromaen? Et øl med stor fruktighet og kompleksitet. Bringebær, tyttebær, bitre kirsebær og mye mer. Mmm....

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2014
Hazy dark orange pour with a foamy offwhite head. Strong caramel malty aroma for a IPA, with some grapefruit. Pretty heavy on the sweet side, but balanced well by it’s bitterness.
