saxo (13796) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2013

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Fiery amber, hazy, thin to moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Pale sweet citrusy and fruity nose, hoppy too.   Semi-sweet citrus and pith on the tongue.   I thought it would be more floral or fragrant, but seems fairly average.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Sweet pith and citrus peel on the finish.   Doesn’t seem like an IIPA, perhaps a bigger IPA, but its not overly hopped or on the malty side.   Well crafted, but to me, very much middle of the road.   Thanks to fatknitty for the bottle!

Rasmus40 (10578) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle from Mikkeller bottle shop. Hazy orange with a big and lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and rather hoppy - grapefruit and pine. Flavor quite sweet and very bitter. Dry and very bitter finish. 050713

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Lightly hazy, orange gold color with a small, creamy, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of orange, citrus fruits, pine, light tropical fruits. Seemingly typical 3F aroma that I hadn’t had in a while. Taste of citrus, pine resin, tropical and some citrus fruits, with orange, and grapefruit bitterness in the finish. My only complaint is that I wish it were fresher. Still, very nice.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Pours pretty thick orang sunrise with a creamy tan head. Aroma is juicy, lemons and rye spice. Hops may have faded a bit, but they are present bringing some tang and citrus and then the rye bready flavor comes in on a full, thicker body.

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Hazy orange pour, HUGE frothy head, and bitter oranges, rye, & herbal hop aroma. Flavor is also a nice meld of herbs, hops and hints of rye throughout and finished a little sweet/orangey. Decent beer, but too pricey to buy more than once.

_angst_ (2559) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2013
Bomber courtesy of rlgk. Pours hazy pale golden with a frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving a sticky trace and lacing on the glass. Smell is fruity and herbal with crackers, white bread, mixed fresh tropical fruits, alcohol, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, gooseberries, unripe currants, freshly cut grass, pine needles, resin and hints of dry wood. Taste is very tiny sweet, bitter and fruity with crackers, white bread, alcohol, tropical fruits, pine needles, resinous wood, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, grapefruit rinds, gooseberries, black pepper and hints of red currants and black currant leaves. Mouthfeel is round, slightly oily bitter, smooth, very tiny astringent and near full bodied. Finish is bitter with grapefruit rinds, lemon balm, alcohol, pine needles, resinous wood and lemon zest. Very very nice IIPA.
