SG111 (439) - New York, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottles. Best by date is 12/23/14. So take this with a grain of salt. Pours clear honey golden color, white/beige head. Aroma is mango, grapefruit, tropical fruits. The degeneration is apparent. But not too bad. Flavor is a pretty much a malt bomb. I haven’t had a non-fresh IPA in a long time. This is caramel malts, toffee, orange, grapefruit citrus come through in the middle and the finish. More like a light Barleywine than an IPA at this point. Still enjoyable and I tend to think this is great fresh. Will have to revisit fresh.

sonotono (88) - torino, ITALY - MAY 9, 2015
Bel colore ambrato arancione. Odore fruttato, leggermente resino es erbaceo. Sapore molto amaro, poco stemperato dai malti, leggermente allappante e resinoso. La bottiglia non ha fondo, quindi credo che la birra sia stata filtrata.

bartlebier (2483) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2015
12oz bottles in Victory sampler 2013 and poured in What’s Brewing workshop 3 TÜ, 2015. Citrus caramel bonbon meets friendly herbal leaf resins in taste and mouthfeel. Slight Simcoe/Centennial dankness, pungency when older. Could be more expressive in aroma, although that might be the trade routes speaking.

Wolfbass (954) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 7, 2015
Direi decisamente un bel colore, e anche un bel naso che lasciano presagire molto bene. Ma poi in bocca non mi convince molto, un pò troppo sbilanciata.

Deep Orange.Smell: some caramel, malts and hopiness. Taste has some fresh malts and hops. Very fruity. Overall a bit boring but drinkable and quite good.

DeliriumT (374) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2015
Pours golden with creamy lasting head. Aroma is beautifully sweet and in-your-face hoppy. Beautiful citrus nose with spices lingering afterwards. Flavour is very sweet caramel with piercing hop bitterness. Beautifully balanced. Perfect for quaffing or sipping. Malt flavours come through prominently if you let it warm a little to about 10 Celsius. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
