Bärnstensfärgad. Kraftig humledoft. Humlen medföljer även i smak och möter en balanserad maltsötma. Inte direkt en kioskvältare men klart godkänd Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2012
0.5l bottle @ BrewDog, Camden. This is a clear caramel-colored one with a nice medium sized light bubbly and heavy lacing off-white head. On the aroma it’s light malty and sweet with hints of fruits and red berries. Smells not extreme, but quite nice. It’s a bit thin in texture, and it’s average carbonated. The flavor is light caramelly - some burned caramel as well and I get a nice hoppy-bitter flavor. Not extreme or anything, but quite tasty. A bit strawberry-sticky towards the finish perhaps? Almost so much that it could have been a barley wine. Tasty indeed. 22.07.2012 ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 31, 2012
A - Pours a clear amber-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, citrus, and floral hops with some sweet caramel malts.
T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit and other tropical hops, some bitterness, and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some floral and piney hops come through with some more bitterness and some bready malts. The finish is a mix of pineapple, grapefruit, and pine hops with some sweet bready malts.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.
D - Very drinkable. Good hop and malt balance with some good bitterness and body for overall balance. gunnar (9695) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2012

Pour is deep amber with big beige head. Aroma is a pleasant pine hoppiness. Flavour is initially hints of apricot and some breadiness before the hops come in and do their business coating the palate with resinous hops. Finish is quite long and enjoyable. Top stuff!! reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale amber orange color with a finger of creamy white head that retains well and leaves some soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus with some light fruits and grains. Taste is bold pine and citrus hop bitterness up front balanced nicely with an underlying malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some good carbonation leaving a nice feeling on the tongue. A pleasing and bold india pale ale that is recommended for a tasting. Tide (4336) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
Bottle from Brewdog shop. Amber color, small white head. Taste: caramel, citrus, hops and herbs, nice bitter finish. Very enjoyable beer. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - APR 15, 2012
Pours a clear and bubbly orange. Nice lacing on the glass. Very sweet on the nose. Methinks some of the hop bite got lost in transport. But if you are in a non west coast hop mode this would really work. Really sticks to the palate without scraping it to death. Getting some orange taste at the very end.
