Bottle. Floral, citrus on the nose. Flavor is the same. Chewing aspirin and not malty enough for the hop profile. Meh.

Das "Freckle Belly India Pale Ale" von der Back Forty Beer Company aus Alabama (USA). Das Dosendesign ist einfach, aber gut. Orangegold und trüb im Glas, gut haltende Schaumkrone. Fruchtig bitterer Antrunk, vollmundig öliger Körper, malzsüss, Grapefruit, Pinie, Orange, Zitrone. Der Alk (7,5%) kommt kurz auf, wird aber schnell von der Bittere übertüncht. 85 IBU, Fünf Hopfensorten (Amarillo, Apollo, Centennial, Chinook, Citra) sorgen für ein richtig trockenes Mundgefühl. Die Fruchtnoten gehen leider etwas unter bei der Bittere, ansonsten ganz gut zu trinken.

tricksta_p (5346) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2017
Can from Beer Republic. Aroma is sweetish caramel malt, biscuity notes, piney hops, citrus, Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium. Enjoyable IPA with sweet caramel malt and pine resin on the front, modest hops in the aroma and a firm bittersweet flavour.

VastActiv (7738) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Can at home, Nivala. Color is clear dark orange with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Some fruits, pine, caramel, harshness, some hops and malts. Musty and quite bad drinkability.

Benzai (16919) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2017
Can @ home shared with Inoven and TomHendriksen. Clear orange golden color, medium to full sized white to off-white head that lasts for a decent while and leaves fair lacing. Aroma is malts, huge hops, piney spruce. Tastes about the same: malts, hops, pine, spruce, slightly tropical fruit hoppy and nicely bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Nice!

TomHendriksen (1011) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2017
Blik gedeeld door Benzai gedronken met Inoven. Het is een amberkleurig bier met een volle een dunne witte schuimkraag. Het heeft een hoppige geur, de smaak is hoppig en wat zoet en een beetje houtig.

TBone (18556) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2017
Can 355ml (Beer Republic, BB 11/22/17)
Clear dark amber colour, small steady off-white head. A bit bready aroma with some pine and caramalt. Medium-bodied. Piney hoppyness with some fruits andresin. Crystal malty backbone. Decent bitterness but aroma has lost its charm.

3.2
olio (10686) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2017
355 ml can. No freshness info.
Pours clear dark golden color with a large white head. Resinous and piney aroma, slightly malty, fairly fresh hops, orange peel and some sweet candy. Flavor isn't quite as good as the aroma led to believe, quite thin malty juicy feel actually, some caramel and orange, bitterness is vapid, hops also quite faint. Easy to drink but forgettable.

pictoman (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
Poured from 355mL bottle (bottled 07/13/16). Medium orange with off white head. Citrus and pine hops with caramel malt. Good balance.

3.4
DocJitsu (2060) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Pours a deep orange golden with an off white head. Sweet pine and citrus nose. Flavors are more tropical. Even some banana. More dryness and bitterness than the nose would suggest.
