yespr (47545) - Copenhagen O, - JUN 29, 2013
75 cl bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is light yeasty and toasted malty. Sweet fruity, caramelish and dense hoppy, solid bitter. Smooth fruity and crisp bitter into a dry finish.

abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
0,75 l flaske delt på RBHD-treff på Tau november 2016. Uklar gyllen kropp med lyst brokete skum. Lukter gammelt av umami og malt. Smaker søtt med alkovarme under. God fylde. OK øl.

Sigmund (7910) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
Shared 750 ml bottle at local tasting, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 9%. Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of stale marmalade, possibly oxidised. Somewhat unfresh flavour, a bit alcoholic, decent hops but no masterpiece.

3.3
Holmen1 (6465) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
Fra flaske på RBHD-samling på Tau nov-16: lett uklar gylden med ok skum. Karameller, stikkelsbær, gule epler, appelsinmarmelade og overmodne tropiske fruker. Halvtørr ettersmak med behagelig bitterhet. God maltkropp men uten mersmak.

3.6
Holmen2 (4031) - NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
Shared bottle with RB/HD at Tau 01.11.16. Muddy orange. Small white head. Aroma of old marmalade and barley wine. Similar taste, with mango, papaya and other tropical fruits. Solid sweetness. More like a good barley wine than an IPA.

3.2
gunnar (9695) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2016
Shared bottle at RBHD, Tau. Pours hazy dark golden, no head. Aroma is malty, oxidiced fruits. Taste is light sweet malty marmelade, weak dry hops in the back.

2.6
TEJA (3256) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2015
Sampled at SBWF 2013. Beghe fluffy head. Clear golden color. Dry malty aroma. Caramell taste and a small bitterness for an DIPA.

2.4
nihtila (3912) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
3.5.2014. Keg. Hazy orange with dense white head. Intense fruity aroma with passion fruit. Unfortunately taste is not similar but mostly sweet caramel, alcohol, pine. Not good at all if this (keg) is how it should be.

3.3
Leini (2079) - SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2014
Sample @ a tasting event. Amber body with a medium white head. Fruity, caramelly and quite boozy.

2.6
FatPhil (17075) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2014
330ml bottle (Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki, Kalakierros 2014)
Sweet fruity hop aroma. Some booze in there, only gets worse as it warms. Orange, almost no head. Fairly watery palate, thin, decent carbonation. Very boring taste, sweet caramel malts, tropical fruit hops. Nothing of interest here, can happily scroll past. Except I stupidly bought a large one. Finish caramelly, some bitterness which is OK. Meh. The Bon Jovi of beer, played at high volume. Increasing volume only improves music that was good in the first place.

3.2
visionthing (5530) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2014
75cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Medium hoppy aroma with some fruity notes, hints of caramel, malt and spices. Notes of alcohol. Medium sweet with fruity flavours and lightly bitter finish. Fair enough.
