355 ml can (7% abv) @ Timo A. No date info.jamestulloch (4064) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Pours slightly hazy orange color with a small head. Resinous hops on the aroma, caramel, subtle chocolaty notes on the background, Flavor is a bit cardboard-y, malty and dry fruity, some resinous hops left, finishes bitter. Decent though a bit old brew.
Can from Vino Wines. Hazy orange body with tiny yeast flecks floating around. Thin white head. Steady carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, blood orange and marzipan. Flavour of honey, lightly roasted malt, dried apricot and a peppery hop finish. Thin medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Sugary sweet and a trace of hops. mile (3934) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Can. Golden, Golden, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, citrus/piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and tropical fruitiness with some citrus/piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness with citrus - some piney hoppynes, faint alcohol. OK dryish and well hopped IPA. Could use more fruitiness in flavor/finish. Lore (2671) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 22, 2016
hazy orange to amber colour, moderate sized off-white head; aroma of grapefruit, tangerine notes, orange zest oils, some tropical fruits, hints of pine resin, biscuit, minimal grass and sauerkraut; taste is less complex with intensive bitterness, some tropical fruity, tangerine and grapefruity notes as well as caramel; if the taste was as perfect as the aroma, it would be a really perfect IPA Idiosynkrasie (7436) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2016
355ml can. Cloudy amber colour with average to huge, thick, fluffy, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, off-white head. Intense, citrusy and piney, hoppy aroma, lots of grapefruit, lemonnotes, a sweaty, resinous touch, biscuity malty background. Taste is crisp, bitter, citrusy hoppy, grapfruit and orange notes, hints of lemon and mandarine, candied orange zest, minimally sugary, caramel malty basis, widely choked resinous interludes somewhere between sweat and purulence; seems almost to be a bit watery due to too weak a malty backbone, not able to fully get on with the hoppy overload.

Tap. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small tight bubbled white head that faded to a thin film. Nice citrusy hops with some grapefruit and caramel malt. The flavor is lighter on the bitterness than expected, it tastes pretty citrusy with some grapefruit rind and a light piney note. Fairly sweet caramel malt base. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with fizzy carbonation, some slight hop stickiness on the back end. Overall, pretty decent, though not a standout.

Alright, it’s better than that NZ muck but still tastes of swimming pool water, air freshener and Halls Metholyptus. Cheeky looking can. Murky honey colour with fine lace and foam. Bouquet of battered chipshop sausage sprayed with peach air freshener, vomited Southern Comfort, spruce and bile. Soapy rosemary and Lockets aspects. Perfumed, sweet and boozy with zero hop character. Sorry, I’m not having it. Thinking man’s Special Brew.

Draft at Hale’s. Fairly orange pour, medium off-white head that left good lace. Real nicer burst of hops, citrus and pine, in the aroma. Very flavorful hop body without being too aggressively bitter. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Citrus and good dose of pine here. Pours golden with good head. Good balance, and good beer all around. Nice bitter finish with hay notes in aftertaste. Subtle and very well done. s_hartshorne (2767) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2015
