DWG; Pours clear golden with a creamy, lasting lacing white to off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, mostly citrus fruits, tropic and pine. Taste is sweet and bitter, light sour, light spicy and mostly bitter lasting. Mandarin, sure. Body is medium, texture is oily to creamy, carbonation is soft. Wow.. compared to all it’s glory it’s as good as my last one. Cheers!

500ml bottle, batch 991, bought at Den Nordiske Ølhandel, shared with my friend Skinnyviking during this year’s Absalon tasting. Bubbly, off-white head with a solid stand and loose lacework down the glass. Mid-sweet fruity aroma, hints of peach and orange. Rather sappy taste of citrus, peach, wheat and caramel malts. Bittersweet tail. Fine bodied. Tasty, maybe I had expected even more from this (Copenhagen 04.05.2014).

@Basunen: ganska snäll. Humlig doft. Smaken är tydlig fruktig och lagom besk. Trevlig.

Bottle at America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours hazy amber with stable off-white head. Intense, hoppy aroma, with notes of citrus and fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sweet notes of malt and fruit. Acidic, citrussy touches, lasting well into the aftertaste. A nice one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gylden/oransje med medium høyde på skummet. Tiltalende aroma av mild furu, noe appelsin og sitrus. Smaken består av sitrus, malt og humle. Antydninger til appelsin samt furu. God i munnen, fruktig med sødme fra malten og noe bitter. Bitterheten fra humla presenterer seg selv best i ettersmaken syns jeg. Godt balansert, medium konsistens.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the courtesy of Rune. Low fluffy off-white quickly disappearing head. Hazy peach coloured body. Dry dusty fruit malt aroma. Dusty mild light spicy fruit flavor. Low carbonation. Short finish. A bit disappointing and watery in spite of the high alcohol contents.

500ml bottle. Hazy, amber colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Dubious, inexplicably fusty aroma, sulphuric, hints of egg, flatulence. Taste is bitter hoppy, hints of spelt, husk. Total disappointment.

Bottle @ De molen. Very fruity orange/ mandarin aroma, some grassy/floral notes as well. Flavour is a nice biscuit malt base covered in medium bitter fruity hop notes. Great, but somewhat thin in body for the abv.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Unclear, orange to brown. Not a very pretty beer. Lots of white head. Medium body and slightly below medium carbonation. Citrus, grapefruit, some lemon, some malt, hop, some alcohol flavour. A bit warming alcohol. Good IPA.
