Vaiz (3867) - Den Haag, - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle at home. Clear deep orange pour, huge off-white head leaving loads of lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with loads of floral notes, grass, pine and resin. Intense and wonderful. Flavor is slightly sweet at first, then more hoppy bitterness all the way to the finish which has some of the more grassy elements. A tiny bit harsh, but mostly an awesome IIPA. Creamy texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness.

bonkiedeaap (441) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is amber orange, the foam is sticky, cream colored and very large, with a nice carbonation in the beer. Fruity aroma of grapefruit and some peach with a strong hint of caramel in the nose. Beautiful aromatic hopped, not lavish. Well malted, slightly smoky flavor. A resinous medium bitterness and bitterness that lasts well, caramel-between for some sweetness. The beer is fruity but not pronounced fruitiness and rather dry bitter. Some characteristics of bitter zest of grapefruit, citrus and white stone fruit. The finish is dry and medium bitter with some hidden yeast notes and a lot of hops. Wow, this is excellent. Want to try it again.

motelpogo (7238) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 16, 2015
bottled, big thanks to adam. hazy burnt oragne colour with a lingering uneven head; aroma if somewhat musty, hints of white grapeskin and pine; somewhat chalky, out-of-kilter bitterness, peachy malt, lightly gluggy; doesn’t quite work for me
