Golden-amber. Not much head. There’s a little woody, almost anglo-hop to it with light citrus notes (grapefruit) as well. Has that chewy, earthy richness and moderate bitterness. Fairly smooth presentation. Well-made but does not conform to my Seattle-centric IPA bias. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2011
75 cl bottle. Golden beer with a lasting offwhite head. Hoppy grassy aroma, fruity, creamy malty. Hoppy metallic flavor, grassy, milky, perfume notes. chrisv10 (18826) - DENMARK - AUG 19, 2011

Bottle thanks to hopscotch. Pours dark amber with white head. Nose is dark caramels and floral hops. Taste is very smooth sweet caramel and hops. Very tasty! Ferris (17762) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014

Peachy and mandarin aroma, but gets more dull and malty later, a pretty flat IPA, no zing. Straw, brief head. Has both sinky and floaty bits, nice. Not. Startchy body, sweet, some citrussy hops, some bitterness. Finish nicely bitter. Later I get vinegar in the aroma, oooh, that’s bad. Body gets starchier later, hops become more acidic and harsh. Unsatisfying IPA. However, it does cover the alcohol well, mostly by throwing harsh acidic fertilised female hops at the problem. Which causes just as many problems. "Canned 09/02" have you guys ever heard of the concept of years? Another crappy IPA. Snore. Oh gawd, I just noticed the commercial description. Why can’t stupidity be more painful for the perpetrator?
Bottle, 75cl, shared by chrisv10. It pours an unclear body, orangey amber in color and with a finger-thick off-white head. It’s piney, resiny and peachy on the nose, with caramel maltyness in the back. The flavor is really delicious, bitter, fruity and appropriately sweet. Resins, pine cones and peaches, some grape fruit peel. Full body, quite dry, and nicely bitter, finishing with green pine cones and grapefruit peel. And bitterness of course. A really delicious beer, it might be an idea to make it dried, but it’s lovely as it is. 110819 Benzai (16993) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2011
Bottle @ Craft Beer Co., shared by Harrisoni, thanks for that! Slightly hazy medium orange color, small white head. Smell hops, bitter, lightly metallic. Taste hops and bitter. The hops taste very round, not that nice ’sharp’ hoppy, grapefruit-taste. Medium carbonation, medium body. brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 27, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a couple fingers of white head that clings to the glass and leaves a nice lace on the glass.
S: Decently perfumey with a nice floral note and a lot of orange zest, too. There is a light breadiness underneath the hops and a prevailing, though light, citrus note to it.
T: The flavor is pretty nice, better than the nose. Light pineapple with grapefruit and orange, and lots of orange zest. There might even be a bit of melon. Lightly malty with some bread and a light bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.
O: Not the hugest fan of some of the variations of this beer, but this base version is actually decent. Dedollewaitor (16581) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Pours cloudy orange with a small creamy white head and lacings. Grape, pine and peach. Some sweet malts - the hops shines through easily though. Really dry and bitter. Lots of grapefruit. Crisp. Medium bodied.
