Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a completely transparent golden orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of hops with a big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid, albeit very malty, IPA. Marstonlad (1022) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Pours nearly clear bronze with a big, lasting frothy head. Aroma is heavily hoppy; it features peachy fruitiness with an exotic touch and also some piny and floral elements. Taste is bitter, but not brutally so; initially there are even some sweetish notes. It displays mainly fruitiness with orange and peach especially prominent. Also some herbal spiciness is around. Medium bodied, slightly sticky mouthfeel. The finish is dry and bitter. Nicely fruity Christmas-IPA. TBone (18842) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Slightly hazy amber-orange color, good creamy off-white head. Aroma has exotic fruits and pine. Medium-bodied. Piney bitter with exotic fruityness and resin. Lingering bitterness. Some yeasty notes lurking. Nice "bittersweet" IPA. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2013
On tap. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Leaves plenty of good, thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, light carbonation, kind of slick. Caramel malt, some rind orange citrus in the flavor. Some belgian candy sugar. Sadly, I don’t get nearly as much pine nor ginger as I’d hoped for. Pretty sweet taste, light bitter. Was hoping for much more, here.

A mid amber orange coloured beer with a thick white head. A light, spicy aroma, hints of tropical fruit hops, and toffee apples. Dry mouthfeel. A mighty complex flavour, a sour hop taste, with tropical fruits, and citrus fruits. Then the ginger spice comes through, with a resinous oily taste from the pine needles. All of which last into the finish.

33cl bottle from Alko. A hazy golden beer with a bubbly huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of pungent lime and straw, which is light. The flavors present are malt, straw, and yellow flowers, leading to a dry bitter finish. For my taste maybe too tight. jonnyguns (1108) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a golden with a large white head. Nose is full of sweet ginger, pineapple, herbal notes, mandarin and citrus. Taste is quite grassy and herbal...even the hints of ginger coming through. Palate is left with a chewy ginger grassy like bitterness. Interesting stuff. Different take on an ipa!

yeast aromas, appear golden/brown, with a fine white head. great bitter taste, with sweet notes, and a grreat mouthfeel Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
33cl bottle. Hazy orange - big lasting white head. Plenty of pineapple and mandarin orange, really sweet ginger, and some piney hops. Taste lathers on the tangerine orange and mango, sweet ginger biscuits, pine resin, light caramel, more root ginger, pithy grapefruit. Plenty of great flavour here. Medium bodied. Lots of pine and grapefruit bitterness. Lingering juicy citrus and tangerine. On the sweet side, but still plenty of good hop character. KnutAlbert (6837) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2013
Another Mikkeller IPA. Golden beer. The evergreens and the ginger makes this Christmassy, but it is not innovative. A beer to be enjoyed with food - and very overpriced, at least around here.
