On tap at Kick. An unclear, almost murky orangey brown beer with an off-white head. Sourish, caramel malty aroma with a nice spiced touch. Cellar hints, pine cones and a touch of alcohol. Its full bodied, lightly warming and nicely carbonated, rather dry, with caramel, prunes, some cellar, a pleasant spice touch and piney, bitter hops. Lasting sourish, malty aroma with pine cones, bitterness and some warming alcohol. Not a summer beer, thats for sure, but its a fine brew indeed. Pleasant combo of sourness, bitterness and malts. 160716

Can. It pours hazy deep orange with a creamy off white head. Spicy hops and caramel malts with crackers and some floral notes. Light pine and citrus with sweet caramel malty flavor notes. Lots of malty notes but a high amount of hops makes this very balanced. Great stuff.

Can shared with Joes. Hazy cloudy dark red-amber color, medium sized white to off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, hops, lightly resinous. Taste malts, hops, resinous hoppy, slightly sweetish, hops and hop bitter. Decent to medium body and carbonation. Lovely!

Damn. This was brewed in December of 2015 and I thought it was a winter warmer style beer. Still kicking ass this is an old school near DIPA, with a think toffee and cookie body balanced with a big citrus and grapefruit hop onslaught and spicey pine finish with some sweet malt. Really good and amazing it still drinks so good at this age.

Rune (12326) - Troms, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2016
Small glass, on tap at Crowbar. Patchy layer to an amber-red body, close to clear. Smell of ripe orange. Red orange flavours and with mid-sweet malts beneath, lightly spiced. Rather long-lived bitterness to the ending. Soft in the mouth. Fine bodied. Refreshing (Oslo 23.05.2016).

Uit blik (0,5l) geschonken. Oranje-amberkleurig bier. Aromas van mout, gist, hop, citrus, vanille. Smaak van mout, hop, gist, vanille, mandarijn, sinaasappel. Heerlijk zoet-zacht-bitter van smaak, met een nasmaak die bitter-hoppig is met een sinaasappelsmaak erdoorheen. Heerlijk!

MelvinKalksma (1467) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with medium yeast and with a medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer achieves a good balance between malts and hops, but could have been more deep and complex. Extremely drinkable and with an amazing flavour.
