Bottle at home, 03/02/13, big thanks to JF for gifting this one to me. Lightly hazed orange amber with a good sized egg shell white head. Nose carries quite a heavy plastic aroma, this really set me off on a bad start with to this one. Beyond the plastic I can gain light toasted malt, orange, straw, faint hops but it overpowers a little too much. The plastic notes subsided after a few minutes. Bitter orange, faint pine came into play. Aroma score +1 on original. Taste comprises light grapefruit, bitter orange, straw, touch of pine, earthy hops, bitter mandarin, pineapple. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying closure. Ok APA strange plastic aroma on the nose let it down to begin with but it got better, not a great though, the hops are a little subdued.

[1 Feb-tripp till Mikkeller] Kanske lite dov i aromen dock betydligt tydligare och friskare i smaken. b

Slick with a medium body. Nice aroma of resin. Good malty backbone. Not bad but not as outspoken as expected from to ol. Very good balanced beer, no real bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sigmund (5316) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2014
Sample from bottle at Vectura-messe. Hazy orange colour. Moderate aroma, a hint of orange peel. Dry and refreshing flavour, with a hoppy, piney and spicy bite in the finish.

angel77 (1092) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 27, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en casa. 27-01-2014, En el momento. Color miel bastante oscuro y turbio con espuma blanca persistente. Aromas afrutados y algo resinosos al final. Cuerpo medio bastante cremoso con 6 vol muy interesantes. Sabores algo afrutados y dulces al principio seguido de toques resinosos que dejan un regusto amargo en boca bastante bueno. Buena, para repetir sin problema.

Bottle at Bastard Restaurant in Malmo. Nice flavors, not to strong and you can feel a hint of the pine needles and a little citrus.

Pinball (10927) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2014
cloudy orange, smoot offwhite head.aroma is mild hoppy, slightly malty , hop notes are bitter hops and a little pine.faint grapefruit. flavor is dry hoppy ale, low on sweetness, some malty bitterness, pretty tasty and pretty clean. quite bittersweet , but not over the limit and bittersweet-cloying, faint notes of caramel too, end is malty. hops are very dry, almost only yielding bitterness and perhaps grapefruitpeely fruity notes.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, massive beige head. Smells of citrus, zests, spices, some fruityness and malts. Moderate sweet, spicy, zesty, malty. Heavy bitter finish; resins and zests. The body really can take all the bitterness. Very nice
