sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2015
Bouteille 33cl de et partage avec Pierre T. Bottle 16/09/2015. Lger orang, col fin blanc. Arme offre un bouquet renforc au niveau de la puissance du houblon; ici une impression de sac frais de houblon, pas mal de rsineux mais aussi un lger ct levure qui est moins plaisant. Palais met un accent certain sur le pin-rsineux, sec en fin de bouche avec un accompagnement lger dagrumes, petite rondeur au niveau grains, avoine? le tout ponctu par un malt caramel lger.

Towey1989 (2104) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Keg at The Buxton Brewery Tap House. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange marmalade, pine, slight lemon, some caramel and grassy hops. Taste is similar of orange marmalade, slight grapefruit, resin, caramel, maybe slight toffee and subtle grassy hops. Medium bodied but a slightly syrupy texture. A dry, marmalade bitterness in the finish. A hard hitting, orange marmalade IPA. Nicely balanced with the sweet caramel but maybe a little viscous, nice though.

tomekk1978 (1346) - Zbki, POLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Aromat: początkowo głwnie zioła, potem na czoło wysuwają się owoce tropikalne i może odrobinę cytrusw. Wyraźny charakter słodowy w postaci zboża i herbatnikw. Alkohol wyczuwalny, ale nie przesądzony. Wygląd: barwa złota, klarowna. Piana biała, lekko zabarwiona, drobno pęcherzykowa do kremowej, obfita i dosyć trwała. Smak: konkretny. Sporą dawka słodu (j.w. plus nieco karmelu), jednak umiarkowanie słodko, alkohol, skontrowane chmielem. Goryczka powyżej średniej, owocowa - cytrusw, drażniąca i dość długa. Dodatkowo potęgowana przez alkohol. Okrągła pełnia, Umiarkowane wysycenie i wyraźnie goryczkowy (grejpfurtowy) oraz alkoholowy finisz. Nieźle, ale spodziewalem się więcej. P.S. nieco przyjemnie było dopiero po orzekaniu ostatniej części piwa, bo choć z osadem i bardziej kwasowa to zdecydowanie bardziej odczuwalny był chmiel.
