(Can, 0.473 l, at Stadin Panimobaari, 20160706) The beer poured deep amber and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had creamy toffee, pine and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, creamy toffee, pine, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A nice hoppy pale ale.

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.

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 (1297) - 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.

473 ml. can. Canned on 13OCT2015. Great art. Lightly hazy orange amber with a creamy off-white head. Nose is milky yeast mixed in with mellow pine hops, orange rind & low toffee sweetness. Taste is mellow pine hops, orange peel, some milky yeast leading into a pleasantly sweetish vanilla, toffee & butterscotch malt finish. Creamy body, Quite lovely, great mix of USA hops & sweetish malts, works really well. Feels like something that Stone would be proud of. I am really dinging the sweetness in the back, drinks really well. Age might have mellowed it a bit but I think that I might actually prefer this one like this with muted hops. I would definitely repeat buy this sucker if it was local etc. Drinks really well, very nice.
