Kaatuu lasiin oranssinruskeana ja pienellä katoavalla vaahdolla. Haju on hyvin sitruksisen humaloitu, varsinkin mandariinin kesäinen tuoksu puskee nenään. Maku on makea, mutta katkera sekä hyvin raikkaan hedelmäinen. Sama mandariini toistuu maussa, mutta miedompana. Suutuntuma on pehmeän katkera, joka jää kitalakeen ja kielen reunoille tuntumaan. Kaiken kaikkiaan raikas, hedelmäinen ja hyvin miellyttävä sekä kesäinen. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2011

, Helsinki. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is bready malts, some floral and fruity notes as well as mild herbal notes. Flavour is bready malts, rather floral and fruity hoppyness along with some herbal notes. Wellbalanced and hides the ABV rather well.
(Bottled, rated 2011-08-19) Murky orange-brown with a tiny head. Some exotic fruitiness in the nose, with lots of raspberry, some wortiness. Sweetish-caramely maltiness in the flavor, warming but soft alcohol, British-US hops, grassiness and wood. Quite full body, low CO2. A drinkable, but slightly stuffy-worty, and too British-influenced DIPA. Needs more (exotic) fruit. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2011
