DuffMan (9746) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle, shared at the pool party. Light orange, hazy, with cream coloured head. Sweet ripe tropical fruit and piney undertones with sweet malts, a little sticky even. Bitterness is a bit harsh, medicinal.

Zymurgeist2 (2003) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Draught at the Office in San Carlos for the Portugal v. France Euro 2016 Final. Overt citrus with moderate pine adding nice balance. Hazy orange with full white head that retained throughout the drink. Taste follows the aroma profile. Enjoyable.

bookman10 (1013) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with smallish head. Dank, fruity aroma. Lots of tropical and citrus. Flavor also marked by strong fruit presence. A touch of sweetness and just a slight bitterness. I like this one.

puboflyons (3232) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2016
From the 650 mil. bottle with no bottling date but I presume it is old. I basically got a malt bomb. It was a decent looking cloudy, orange pour with a long lasting head. The aroma was buttered smashed malts with almost no hop profile. The body was also good and around medium. The taste had all the symptoms of faded hops and mashed malts taking over. Fresh would have been far better I expect given the previous ratings.

jjsint (2586) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle bought as a gift. Dark gold, hazy. Thick. A bit of white head encircles the edge of the glass. Fresh mango, grapefruit, and subdued pine resin aroma. Bitter hop perfectly balanced by intense shortbready malt. The long finish is much note bitter. An extreme experience.

teamsale (227) - Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle. Pours a fairly clear dark golden with a very thin white head and standard lacing. Smells of fruit, especially grapefruit. Taste is very nice, a bit on the harsh side but overall this one is well balanced with a good sweet malt countering abundant NW hops. Very familiar flavors for NW IPA fans. The aftertaste is brief though and the bitterness hits on both the front and back ends. Good but could be better.

Plovmand (7980) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle at home. It pours hazy deep orange with a creamy white head. Sweet marmalade fruity hoppy notes. Sweet malty. Light honey. Oranges and light pine. Quite sweet malty flavor with fruity hoppy notes. Peach and pine.

Strykzone (6944) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A fluffy white head leaves lots of lacing. The beer is clear golden. The aroma is pine and caramel. The flavor is full of fruit. Complex fruit and pine. Simcoe hops? Citrus and pine with tropical fruit. The IBU claim is listed as 100 on the bottle and is not legitimate. This is moderately bitter at most. A little honeysuckle in here. Very nice and easy to drink. I dont taste any alcohol despite that ABV. Good stuff!
