kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a very thin ring. The nose is citrusy and slightly resiny hops with a pale malt base. The flavor is rather bracingly bitter up front at first, but the hop flavor emerges a bit with some citrusy fruitiness. A nice bready and doughy malt base that provides a nice backdrop for all the hops without being sweet or heavy on the caramel like a lot of DIPAs. Medium to full bodied with a softness to it that’s unusual for the style. Pretty nice beer, I could drop a few of these guys. Plovmand (8266) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle. It pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Loads of caramel malts and some butter in the aroma mixed with fruity hops and marmalade. Sweet malty flavor with some citrus hoppy notes. Some fruity notes. Some alcoholic notes. Not very good. TheKernOwl (214) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2016
Nose has lots: caramel malt/mince pie sweetness; honey/spice of a Belgian tripel; somewhat piney fruit (orange juice; apricot; unripe mango). In the mouth, a tea-y/bread-y flavour; slightly fizzy, but also slightly cream-y afterwards. A slightly bitter citrus/apricot hop hum to finish. A little too balanced in favour of the malts (despite the variety of hops put into it), but very enjoyable. Put me in mind of Porterhouse’s “Brainblasta”, which is no bad thing, but that comparison may be off (and either way, this has way more hops in it). Feels more like a 7%-er than 8.4%, which is arguably quite a good thing.

On tap it has an amber color with a medium head. Aroma of tropical fruits and some malts. Taste has some hops, pine and some resin. Beer falls a bit flat for me. dojken (532) - SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2016
Flarra. Svag doft lite frukt o lite metall. Smaken hyfsad men något tunn. Det finns frukt o lite gräs men för lite. Det bästa med ölen är faktist efterbeskan som är bra balanserad med lång eftersmak.

Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Nice citrus aroma with pine notes. Citrus and resin taste with caramalt. Sweet with moderately bitter finish. beer-yum (1653) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 21, 2016
Citrus pine aroma in a golden amber pour. A nicely balanced brew with the hops and malts in perfect harmony. Finish is the same - and decidedly ’moreish’.
