allanmb (247) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2017 Pours slightly golden orange with big off white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, orange and pine hops with honey and malt tones. Great mouth feel and medium carbonation. Taste is malty with hint of hops (this is an old bottle and the hops have clearly diminished). Finish is bitter with malt and slightly boozy. This used to be much hoppier from memory but age has gotten to this one.

On tap at Kick. An unclear dark orange colored beer with a small dense off-white head. Some lacing. The aroma is very piney, with citrus zest and orange. Some malts and bread in the back. Its full bodied, lightly warming and with a lite carbonation level. Citrus zest, pine cones and some pale malts, with a lasting finish. A bit papery malts, with bitterness, pine cones and orange zest in the finish. Sure a pleasant one. 160227

Beer5000 (6320) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2016
On tap @ Kick. Clear, deep golden body with a fine, lacing off-white head. Strong fruity aroma with peach, oranges and caramel malt. Flavor is medium sweet, fruity, malty, bisquit and quite bitter. A fine mature peach flavor with quite much oranges and a hint of pine is making a good balance towards the malt and caramel base. Alcohol is well hidden and all over this is a fine balanced IPA. Fine balanced body as well and long lasing fruity bitter aftertaste.
