From Bierkraft. In Teku glass. Playing Tales Across Time. Nice citrusy and sweet profile that I suppose comes from the kumquats. Light body and a not much strong yet notorious bitterness. The aroma is a bit weak though. 4 months before bb date

Maris (1499) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2017
From a 31ml bottle on 7/5/017. Pours a hay orange golden with not much head. The nose is very fruity, with citrus, stone and tropical all in the mix. The flavour begins with lots of sweet citrus, which is quickly met by a very strong, distinctive, resiny, slightly puckering bitterness, with some grapefruit present. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. I can’t say i’ve eaten a kumquat before but this makes me want to try one. Love the balance here. A terrific and unusual IPA.

Bottle. Somewhat hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of honeyed tenor-register citrus, bread. Some grapefruit. Brooding. 7+ Quite sweet with bread and that toffeeish citrus you get from marmalade. There’s a lean towards dry and a building bitterness as the end approaches. I like the way it gradually grips towards the end. Bottled in Oct 16, but seems not too old. Deep rather than vibrant.

MrBunn (2807) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Bottle. Slightly hazy gold with a big sudsy head and aromas of oranges, peaches, a bit of soap and a little mango. Flavor has a really interesting progression that starts with oranges (kumquats, whatever...) then hits a quick note of malt chewiness (kind of doughy), then intense bitterness that is really non-defined but makes the mouth water and the face shrivel. From there things end with a kind of kumquat pith citrus ending. Interesting, to say the least, but it doesn’t really fit well together as a product. It’s more like a jumble of different parts that have been stuck together...

Alewife Baltimore draft. A bit odd. Too bitter in a weird way. Not my favorite aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nearbeer (5370) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2017
11.5 oz. bottled 2016-05-06. Lightly hazy orange-amber with a frosting of creamy foam. Aroma is papaya, resin, mango and a bit of toffee. Tastes the same plus some wooden hop on the finish. Almost-medium bodied with a smooth low-medium carbonation and a nice balance.

Padedze (49) - - MAY 5, 2017
Clean aroma of citrus and tropical fruits with a soft malty background. Bright appearance, clear orange hue. Short lasting head. Very well balanced. Crisp and fruity taste. A very enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fraiche et ronde en bouche. Fruité, légère acidité et beaucoup d’amertume; fleur d’oranger. Très bien dans l’ensemble.

3.3
adamnowek (2644) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2017
Bright yellow with some floaties. Aroma is mild with a bit of kumquat. The taste features far more of the kumquat but with a bitter, tart finish.
