Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle, hazy deep orange pour. Aroma of resin, pine and some candy malts. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and with a decent body. Slightly sweet caramel malts.

Bottle, interesting to see this is a new rate. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, citrus, citrus peel, some earthy notes, doesn’t pop like some of their other beers.

Didn’t realize this one got it’s own entry. Kewl :) Soft aroma and palate as usual for this beer. Alcohol covered up pretty good. Floral, fruity and candied peel aroma and flavor, moderately bitter but with some sweetness to match.

Slight haze, haze kind of dull, the mandarina is in particular not bright. So some duller hops, not all that bitter. Malt forward and the malts aren’t great.

650ml bottle at Matt’s place. Pours a slightly murky golden amber with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy, sweet. Taste is sweet, bitter, hoppy, citrusy. Piney bitterness aftertaste. Good stuff.

3.2
mcberko (18956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out orangey and resinous hops, with a little citrus and caramel malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with orangey notes, resinous hops, and sweet candied caramel notes. Rather sweet and orangey. Not nearly as good as I remember the regular Hop Henge. Still, decent.

3.5
Ferris (16499) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle - Sweet candy and medicinal, touch of onion and caramel. Clear gold with a dcent white head. Lots of sweet notes, some candy and a light bitter finish. Not as good as it usually is.

Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy golden color with compact head. The aroma develops in the glass; it starts with very fresh mandarin and mango, it changes to higher notes of biscuity malts and summer flowers in a hot field. Lean body, with a very mild sweetness; nice malts, less crackery than expected though; it has a good level of bitterness, the hops are juicy, mellow.
Excellent beer, I wish I had it fresher.

Andrew196 (1993) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2016
Hazy pumpkin in color, strong off white head. Pale ale aroma, not too piney, honey. Great taste this guy....creamy resin, pine, but still a malty backbone. Great take on the style...well disguised ABV.

4.6
Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Pours a dark amber with a white irregular head. Smells, as expected, of extremely bitter hops and spices. Goes down bitter, finishes with a harsh bitter dry kick and yet had a somewhat oily mouthfeel. Honestly kind of weird. Loved this one as well!
