(22oz bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor on August 10, 2012. Pours a huge almond-coloured head atop a deep orange body. Stands somewhat in between but definitely leaning towards a double IPA. Very Seville orange and pine flavoured. Good

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 Bottle - pours golden with a foamy white head, good retention. Definite juniper and maybe some banana on the nose. It tastes like a dry and bitter ipa mixed with a fruit sour... you can taste the gin, but it seems a bit thin and singular in flavour for the barrel ageing to have come into play. The aftertaste leaves a hop residue in the mouth, but it doesn’t have the hop fruitiness and instead leaves a bitter and slightly sour note. It does what it says in that it is a gin soaked ipa, but I couldn’t help but want more depth and less dryness from it zoucrew102 (2236) - - OCT 21, 2017
Bomber. Caramel malt aroma with notes of grapefruit citrus, orange and some pine resiny hops. Pours amber-orange with a large tan head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with grapefruit and orange citrus with a good caramel malt backbone. Finishes dry, but fairly smooth with grapefruit hop citrus and acidity as well as a bit of pine resiny hop bitterness at the very end. Not bad, but not their best. gripweed57 (2967) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2017

Draft at the Saucer. I gotta say I was a bit let down by this, but maybe my impressions were dampened by having such a great beer before this one. This is muddy orange with virtually no head. It’s musty and earthen, with no citric acidity.
Little body to it. (#6743, 8/7/2017) jflopsu (1862) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2017

Pours a semi hazy deep and dark golden color with a thick off white head. Aroma is of hops, malts, some lactic, oak, and a little grass. Heavier and dry palate. Flavor is of hops, malts, fig, bark, oak, and a little booze. Leaves a dry hopped finish with some malts in the finish. Plovmand (8683) - Grindsted, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2017
From tap. It pours clear deep golden with a white head. Sweet fruity hoppy aroma. Peach and light pine. Sweet fruity hoppy flavor. Malty and piney. Peach and passion fruit. Karstenborg (1157) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2017
Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is mango, pine and hops. Taste is lime, pine and hops. simontomlinson (673) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Off white frothy head left a collar on a very hazy dark orange coloured still body.
Big fruity aroma with tropical fruits, peach & Haribos.
Medium to full mouth feel. Smooth with minimal carbonation.
To the fore this has quite sweet citrus flavours with tropical fruits, peach & resin but this sticky dissipates to bitter back with, grapefruit, rye, pine & under ripe fruit. Throughout all this there’s a constant undercurrent of malt.
