ALIBALI (1278) - Kiel, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2017
Geiles Hopfengetränk mit harziger Malzelixiersweetness. Etwas overdosed in vielerlei Hinsicht. Trotzdem auch schwer und lecker. Kratzer... 0,1 aus der Buddel bei der BRAUKUNST LIVE 2017.

ShivanDragon (3688) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2016
bottle from Secret Santa, 2016, thanks, </br> pours clear orange with a full white head. aroma of orange, sweet, tangerine, hoppy. Taste is quite sweet, orange, hoppy, pine, pilsener malts, caramel, pretty firm and typical IIPA, grain, overrip fruits, gras, full body, nice.

bartlebier (3718) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2016
(backlog summer 2016) 33cl bottles sampled. - Fizzy dirty orange pour. Spent orange marmelade, oozing fruit esters of mango jam and Cointreau among the fairly malt-framed pine. - Maybe, but not surely a MHD issue: rougher and stale edges in flavour, too (graininess, abv, hop pellet "fusel"), making it a necessary or at least gladly shared pint. Missing smoothness of malt profile here, something "hard" and not very elegant in there as well - but I’m willing to resample on tap. As is, a fair but generic US-inspired DIPA shedding all regional character of sorts, in line with Crew Escalation, Jopen Hoppenbier, depending on freshness upon arrival...

rusos (699) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle from Spar in Vienna. Sligthly hazy orange golden colour, white head. Aroma hops, pine, resin, orange. Caramel is notably present. Taste is resiny, citrus fruits, orange, lemon, caramel malts. High bitterness. Some alcohol present. Too much caramel in my opinion. Dry high bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall good one.

tomer (3292) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 4, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, small creamy head, light hazy deepish orange color, aroma of orange marmalade, jam, brown bread, nutty and vanila hints, flavor of orange marmalade brown bread and some fruit. Drinkable But a bit old.

ciocanelu (1812) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 17, 2016
Hazy orange color with beige head. Aroma has mostly sweet malt and oranges, even a slight nuttiness. Taste is also quite malty at first, just some earthy malts and orange peel. Finish has medium hop bitterness. Medium body with medium to soft carbonation. Not bad but it’s quite old school, malty and earthy.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Hazy golden. Aroma of stale hops, malt. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of honey, marmalade, bitterish stale hops. Medium-bodied.
