Una olor fantàstica, gust amargant, flors, una mica de taronja... una passada mbpufall (83) - Andover, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Pours cloudy orange. Thin, off-white head with virtually no lacing. Aroma is nice big caramel, tropical fruits, resin and some alcohol. Flavor is caramel sweetness with piney hops and bitter orange peel. Palate is medium bodied with long, bitter hop finish. Decent. Haven’t had Hardcore IPA, but definitely prefer I Beat You. hayduke (5222) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Courtesy of a trade from Strykzone. Poured a hazy orange with a foamy light tan head. Light lacing. Big hop nose with malts underneath. Medium body. Smooth mourthfeel. Flavor is complex with some nuances it seems of just about everything. But most of all it tastes good. Quite a beer. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2011
On tap at the Green Onion in Utica, NY. Cloudy amber pour with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is more subdued than I expected, with subtle notes of nectar fruit, grass, evergreen, and caramel. Flavor is very sweet, with some big ripe peach, grass, and loads of sticky caramel sweetness. Palate is very rich and syrupy. I think this keg might have been hit by a bit of oxidation which I am guessing cut the vibrancy and bitterness I was hoping for, but it still tasted pretty good.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2011 Very sweet and strong.
Orange-brown pour. Aroma more subdued. chewy and rich mouthfeel. Flavor is hoppy and has some caramel malt (oxidation?). Great. Dedollewaitor (16171) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle @ Odense Tasting, May 2011. Pours unclear amber with a small white head. Peach and pine. Sweet and sticky - not too sweet. Fine balance. Smooth and full bodied. Good. RexTalionis (3766) - FINLAND - MAY 3, 2011
On tap at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured hazy amber in colour with creamy tan head. Nice pine and fruity hops in aroma. Flavour filled with grassy notes in different forms. Quite grassy bitter finish. Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2011
A clear amber colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of strong hops with fruits like citrus with spices. The taste of fruits like citrus and some orange with hop bitter. It’s very spicy in the back. The aftertaste is dry bitter with spices and a little sweet. Kateroseearly (2) - - APR 30, 2011 does not count
Bottle. Bought in Shinjuku. Excellent floral aroma. Small-medium head which dissolves somewhat quickly. Dark amber in color, full body, delicious! This beer has a lovely complexity consistent with Mikkeller brews, and hoppy bitterness consistent with BrewDog brews. Highly recommended.
