Bottled, 330ml from Oddbins in Oxford. Clouded orange amber with white head. There is an astringent aroma to this, sharp, promising bitterness which does follow through to the beer. There is a concentrated grapefruit hit with this, rather rough around the edges, raunchy, unrefined in character, lasting bitterness and a fuller, slightly toasted malt body. It’s okay just a little too bruising to the palate. Idiosynkrasie (7423) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 17, 2015
330ml bottle. Barely clear, orangey golden to amber colour with small to average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Slightly sweaty, resinous hoppy aroma, malty background with hints of marzipan and almond. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty, hints of marzipan, slightly biting bitter and resinous hoppy overtones, a citrusy touch, maybe some alcohol in the finish; soft palate, soft to flat carbonation. Malty backbone has DIPA character, supporting resinous hop underscores this weighty tendency (so does the flat carbo); I miss a hop punch with more complex (fruity) flavours conferring some ease. mysland (116) - GERMANY - MAR 28, 2015

Bottle from Oddbins. Hazy, and deep amber in colour, with a decent, off-white, head. Big tangerine and pineapple aroma with some grassy hops and hint of toastiness. Flavour had some chewy malts and more citrus fruits, before a rather rasping, dry finish with accompanying heavy booze notes. So so. planky84 (3214) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
