4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma of pungent hops and malts and the taste is, resin, floral, alcohol and nuts - the latter a bit surprising. An accomplished and fantastic double ipa where the streak of wild yeast breaks through!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Very big floating citrus aroma, caramel, small barnyard notes, and some alc. fumes. Medium orange/amber color, with a sudsy head. Thick caramel initial, which is immediately undercut by hopping and a wild sourish notes. Alc. intrudes a bit. Some yeastiness and then it finishes a little dry. Warming stuff. Medium-heavy body. Interesting stuff. The wild yeast works here. Alc. level is perhaps a bit too high.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/22/15. On tap at The Craft Bar. Hazy orange pour under a small tan head that fades, mild lacing. Huge burnt caramel/brown sugar aroma, fruitiness, a little dusty and husky. Rich burnt caramel/toffee flavor, fruity, surprisingly sweet. Disappointed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite a few bottles @ Fox and Hounds, Aabenraa. Almost clear orange body with a fina, stable off-white head. Gould say a lot about the aroma, citric, grapefruit, malt etc. but actually I find this aroma like the smell from the inside of a brand new car! Flavor is medium sweet, quite malty, hint of caramel, quite complex fruit flavors, peaches, grapefruit, mango, resin, dry fruit with more and a tart, slightly acidic funky little finish. Strong bitterness, still not out of balance. Fine and balanced body, long lasting tasty and bitter finish. I really enjoyed to have this one easy available for my two weeks in December.

Keg at CBC2012, from some old notes. Pale with a creamy white head. Aroma is zesty, fruity. Lively carbonation. Assertive grapefruit zest and lemon flavour. Super dry finish. Very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[6026-20131030] 330mL bottle. Fragrant fruity orange rose petals aroma. Slightly hazy, red orange body with a quick foamy white head. Boozy woodsy orange leaves flavour has a lingering sweet aftertaste. Medium-full body is all high octane fuel so it also feels dense. Interesting but couldn’t have a lot. (8/3/6/3/14) 3.4
