Bottle. Thanks Mathieu76. Pours clear amber orange with a large, frothy, white head. Aroma has bergamot, pear, oranges. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has resin, bergamot, apricot, pear candy. Lingering, quite bitter finish. Nice ipa, where the yeasty notes make it feel like a very hoppy Tripel.

Fin (7251) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Consumed at home in the company of Loz, Craig, Stella & Kids plus Jackie & Simon 02.08.13 Pours hazy orange gold with white head, clearly smells hoppy though unlike some around here, I am unsure if I can pick out this hop. Soft in mouth, touch of creamy vanilla on nose, reasonably bitter with a little mandarin. Good in fact v.good supermarket beer. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Nice cloudy amber coloured beer with a nice firm white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Flavour is nice smooth and medium bitter. Nice one. (Corked Bottle 75cl)

MOARBEER (91) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2013
Picked up all 3 of these Xtrem Hop series (Columbus/Citra/Sorachi Ace) and although they all pour and look like a tipical tripel I was left rather disappointed with the taste. Where’s my Extrem(e) hop goodness? The name is not fitting with the beer. Nice beer but not Extreme in any way.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Clear golden colored pour. Huge white head. Frothy and leaves a huge amount of lacing. Slight floral aroma. Huge peppery hoppy flavor. Some citrus. But very peppery. Not that bitter, but does have a nice malt sweetness. Very nice beer.

DSG (5631) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the new Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy golden with a white head. Hoppy aroma of Sorachi Ace with lemongrass, floral spiciness and some sweetish fruitiness. Flavor of Sorachi Ace with fruitiness, woody and floral spiciness and moderate bitterness. Medium-bodied. Pretty quaffable.
