Idiosynkrasie (7516) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2012
500ml bottle. Cloudy dark golden to amber colour with medium frothy lacing white head. Distinct but moderate hop aroma. Taste is more "powerful", dry and bitter hop, herbal, metallic. Definitely not easy to drink. The hop notes are not on the flattering range of the tongue’s spectrum, but rather strenuous. Nevertheless worth the fray. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2012

Bottle shared at jcwattsruggers. Poured a light gold/amber body with a foamy white average sized head. Aroma of honey, toast and green grapes. Body is nice with a medium mouthfeel, fuzzier carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is a solid step backwards, dry cardboard, grains and straw. Meh. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle. Pours yellowish light brown with a white head. Nose/taste of grapefruit, barley, guava and bready malt. Nose has more of a grapefruit and guava feel than the taste which is more bready. Medium body. Grovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle. Large bubbly beige like head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Cloudy golden/amber color. Aroma of preach, passion fruit, pineapple, light toffee. Quite hoppy fruity aroma and mouthful. The aroma is right up there with Sierra Nevada in my opinion, but the body is a bit too thin. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation and light oily dry texture. Light to moderated bitter and sweet flavor. Gets a little bit of that liquorish like finis from the hops.

Pours cloudy pale amber colour with light and lasting head. Aroma of pine needles, mild fruits and grass. Flavour of apricot, metallic grass and mild pine needle notes. Reminds me a bit of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
On tap at Ølfestival 2011. A slightly unclear beer, amber in color and with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. Sweetish maltyness, pale malts, and some resins on the nose. The flavor is fruity and piney with pale malts in the back. Some bitterness shows up towards the end, but not enough I think. Medium body. Overall, a decent, drinkable beer, smooth on the palate, but not superb in any way. 110527 blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Floral and lightly citric hoppy aroma. The flavor has lightly sweet malts and floral and citric hops. Pretty good. jredmond (8284) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2011
