Fresh bottle given to us by JW77...what a great gift! Orange/red pour. Great hops all over the place. Citrus, tropical fruits and caramel dance into your nose and all over your tongue. As beershine says, hoppy hoppy yum yum!! kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2007

Draft. Pours hazy coppery with off-white head. Nose is piney hops, mango, tangerine. Tastes assertively hoppy with caramel malt, tangerine, and honeydew notes. Hefty, complex palate. This one is outstanding. allmyvinyl (10720) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Clear gold pour, thin white head. Massive pine, resin and grapefruit aromas. Taste has too much caramel sweetness though. Bit drier would’ve been ace. cubs (10639) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 GABF 2012 (and later bottle re-rate). Multiple pours over Thursday and Friday. Pours a dark golden appearance with an off white head. Very dank, spicy, grapefruity aroma. Carbonated, zesty, very dank, piney flavor. Nice stuff.

2011-11-19. Crisp dark amber orange body with a small beige head. 3+ Flavour is lovely, pleasant hoppy bitterness, mild citrus and resin, well balanced and flavours work very well together. 7+ Smooth medium to full bodied palate with soft carbonation. Aroma is a touch muted at first, modest resiny hops come out once you get into it. 7+ Dangerously drinkable, it is not super complex but rather lovely. I have been waiting to try this one for a while now. Draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo

Draft @ brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy reddish orange color with a thick medium sized off white head. The aroma has tons of citrus and tropical fruits, caramel malt with mild earthy notes. The flavor has a sweet caramel malt base, big citrus, mango, pineapple fruitiness, some earthy bitterness to the finish. This was as good as advertised. olio (10372) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012

Pours copper color with a medium head. Aroma of intense hops, caramel, fruits, some toffee notes, pine needles, mild malts and biscuits. Flavor of caramel, oily hops, fruits, mild malts, some faint goose berries and hints of vanilla. Very good.
Bottle at Asahiya. Orange-red with lace. Big citrus and tropical fruit nose, huge juicy fruits. Quite sweet flavor, soft, oily, full bodies. A bit cloying and almost syrupy, but nice. sebletitje (10095) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2009
