pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JAN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Poured a clear and vivid orange with a decent head that fell down reluctantly. Chunky lacing. Bright hops nose with lots of slick pine and sweet citrus. No malt to speak of on the nose. On the palate it’s got medium body and good carbonation. It’s bedeviled with hops but lacking in balance without a bigger malt character to back it up. Goes down oily with a good bitter aftertaste. A very plucky ale. Easy to drink and a clean, long finish.

12 fl oz, Enjoy by 24/11/2015 10:48 P. Pale amber colour with frothy off-white head which reduced to a ring but left some nice lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, caramel and sweet malt. Medium bitterness, light sweetness and a hint of saltiness. Noticeable alcohol. Light to medium body; thin, slightly sticky texture; average carbonation; noticeable malt backbone and a long, slightly dry, pine bitterness in the finish. Not as hop dominant as I was expecting but decent enough. 8.

From bottle. Loads of malty flavor and lingering hops bitterness. Well Worth a try but not sessionable

craftbeersweden (345) - SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2015
Clear, dark amber colored beer with a huge, three finger high, beige-white head. A lot of lacing stays on the glass.

A great nose! I’m a little suprice of the malty nose!
Caramel malt, bread, fudge, brown sugar, butter, biscuit, fudge and grass.
Taste: Caramel malt, grass, pine, dark bread, hops and oak.
Body: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, oily taste.

A great IPA from Victory! Bold and malty! I really like this.

musehead (20) - Siena, ITALY - JUL 25, 2015
Una birra ottima ma non incredibile. L’ho bevuta con molto piacere e l’ho trovata decisamente equilibrata. Sia all’olfatto che al gusto si notano molte caratteristiche dei malti, soprattutto frutta matura e miele di castagno e principalmente al primo contatto. Dopo è prevalente il luppolo che è anche decisamente persistente nel suo amaro. Nonostante sia americana, si avvertono anche sentori terrosi più continentali, sempre affiancati agli aromi dei luppli d’oltreoceano. Consigliata.

Dredd (722) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2015
perhaps the victim of a long voyage. Aroma was a bit salty/skunky, flavour a mix of biscuit and stonefruit. Finish is a bit muddy, nothing to get overly excited over. shame

wolffish (353) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Un mois dépassé la "Enjoy by date: 21 juin 2015)... Je ne crois pas qu’elle devait être si excellente avant cette date. La mienne est vraiment amère et une certaine torréfaction prend beaucoup de place en finale. En peu d’agrumes, beaucoup de résineux rappelant le cèdre et trop peu de mousse, voilà!

Franzen (397) - SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
Aroma is lacking in hops, aroma is mostly some caramel with light hints of lemon. Taste is mostly caramel as well with some bitterness, the bitterness is a bit astrigent and feels misplaced. Dissapointed in this beer but I’ll try it again to -see if it is just an age problem, but htis should be realatively fresh. Drink date 2015-07-20 and enjoy by date is 2015-10-06.

circinus (255) - SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle 33 cl from systembolaget. Amber with a thin beige head. Malty, caramel, fudge, slight hop tone. Some bitterness, wormwood, maltiness. Medium/light body, medium/low carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Maybe too old, no fresh hops aroma.

Gurthnar (3010) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle from Damian Beer and Ale. Hoppy piney citrusy aroma, grapefruit. Resiny. Slightly hazy reddish amber colour, small head. Taste is hop-centered. High bitterness, a little bit harsh, alcohol slightly poking out. Light balancing candyish sugary maltiness. Overall seems somewhat unbalanced and unnecessarily harsh considering the not so high ABV.

elbernays (866) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from Blackrock cellar. Pours amber. Pine, butter, earth aroma. Again a bit stale. Butterscotch, wood, caramel with mild grassy bitter finish. Medium Carbonation. Light body. A bit unbalanced on the hops. Think it’s off a bit.
