Thanks to my brother for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a white head. The aroma has some nice grapefruit and apricot notes, as well as a touch of biscuit malt. The flavor is similar, with a lot of oranges and other tropical fruit coming through. The bitterness is fairly low, but the hop flavor really shines. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a very cloudy, almost murky dark orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma is somewhat unusual, and not tremendously aromatic: a lot of hops - primarily pine and a little citrus, some caramel, but there is a lightly caustic element, maybe a tad soapy. Flavor has plenty of caramel sweetness but it is not overdone, and a very nice bite on the finish. Exceptionally resinous and piny, and a bit of grapefruit in there as well. Intense bitterness is pretty well mitigated by the malt sweetness. Enjoying this bottle immensely.

Bottled. Slightly hazy orangeish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is bigtime fruityness meeting sweet caramel. Flavour is rather similar, but also has a bunch of bitterness to it. Also a slight alcoholic burn to it.

BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2012
12 oz bottle and served in my GI IPA Tulip: Pours a light copper, deep golden hue with a creamy head and very nice lace. The aroma is heavy dank and resiny hops, plenty of pine. mango and grapefruit esters along with some clove. I bit metallic and astringent as well. What little malt you can find is somewhat biscuity and a hint of caramel. The taste is more of the same, heavy hop bitterness with a fair amount of citrus and hop spice. I actually got a bit more malt then I would have guessed but still not enough to make this beer remotely balanced. Extreme metal and band-aid aftertaste then add the biting alcohol. Yep, the mouth feel is aggressive and sharp but the finish is a tad too much, reducing the enjoyment of drinking this beer. Neato to try, would not buy another.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Smells wonderfully piney and savoury. The malt pokes through a little too. Overwhelmingly flavours of pine, strong crystal malt biscuit, straw, some sweat. Delicious but a little too intense for one man alone - I’d recommend tag teaming this one, because it is too tasty for a 10% beer.

Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2012
33cl bottle pours slightly hazy copper with gold hues and thin dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up pine hops, earthy hops, spicy hops and a black pepperiness. Around the edges it seems floral and a touch soapy. The taste has a big spicy to pine bitterness going on that is rimmed by a nice level of dank hop earthiness and then faint hints of floral hops. This is tasting real good with robust levels of both bitter and flavor hops creating a rich experience. It ends with lingering hop bitterness. I dig it.

BOLTZ7555 (3028) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2012
14 karat pour with a small ivory head. Aroma and flavor are extremely leafy, resinous, and sappy. Evergreen-laden, tangerine-filled, and pithy. Bitter, dank, but drinkable. Didn’t get the eye-crossing alcohol pop that I was expecting at 10%. Pretty damn good.

Lilja (3541) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2012
Mycket smak av humle och en angenäm beska. Smak av tropisk frukt, grape. Lite oljig i konsistensen. Trevlig.

3.3
larsga (7680) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2012
Small white head. Hazy deep yellow body with particles. Deep tropical fruit and apricot aroma with orange marmalade and resin notes. Bitter-sweet orangey resin taste with tropical fruit notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, hot mouthfeel. Dry orangey mineraly aftertaste with chalky mealy notes. Nice, but unbalanced. (0.33l bottle. I failed to note who from.)

gunnar (9924) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2012
On tap at Bishops Arms, Copenhagen. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Fruity hop aroma extravaganza, lemons and pine. Taste is raw, resiny bitter, whole pinecones, lingering bitter and fresh finish. HoooHooray
