0.36l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a blurry glowing orange-honey colored beer with a small bubbly, lacing off-white head. The aroma is fruity and caramel sweet with passion fruits, strawberries, sticky caramel and some citrus. It’s average carbonated with a slick texture. Flavors are hoppy and caramel sweet. Almost a bit pungent, but not in a matter that it’s to disturbing. Some ripe citrus fruits going on here as well before it ends in a light dry tongue. An OK DIPA. 16.06.2012 ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a clear orange body with a big creamy head. Nice. Aroma is caramel, malts, syrupy hops, hints of honey melon and citrus. Taste is bitter grassy hops, grapefruit, melon, hints of peaches and resin. The mouthfeel is good; soft and creamy. Despite this, the overall impression I’m left with is that this is not too balanced, somehow. Or exciting, for that matter. Decent enough, though.

0.36 l bottle, thanks Johannes! Hazy yellow brown color. Sweet citrusy aroma with lemon, passionfruit, nuts and hint of sweat. Bittersweet and tart citrusy flavor with some nuttiness, mango, apricot and some yeastiness. Full bodied. A bit heavy on a palate, but not bad. TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2012

Pours hazy amber orange with a medium frothy head. Aroma dry American hops, citrus. Dry bitter taste. Medium bodied. A bit more of it and it would be very nice. Not Bad. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Cloudy light orange beer. Thick, foamy head. Not a ton of aroma for how powerful the hops are, but what there is is citrusy and floral. Bitter and astringent. Sharp bitterness at the beginning that fades as the drink continues.
