jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Hazy red/orange colour with a thin white head. Quite a bit of sediment- maybe I was too cavalier when pouring... Aroma of toffee, caramel, malt, some hops, alcohol. Taste is sweet with a long duration. Thick oily texture, light carbonation. Ok.

thearmi (31) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 21, 2013
A rather mild double IPA with a smooth and mildly bitter taste and a nice, bitter finish. It has a full body as the finnish stays long in your mouth. A really enjoyable beer for a night.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Very nice beer. Crisp and clean. Hoppy but not overbearing. Notes of orange and citrus. Almost no head. Very drinkable beer. At Cherokee Casino.

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Hazy yellow-amber beer with a thinnish white head. Hoppy nose with notes of citrus, pollen, resins, sugary canned fruits, fruitcake and berryish yeast. Malty and slightly sweet/bready flavor with balanced caramel sweetness. Blanced bitterness. In the finish it tasty, dryish maltiness, berryish English yeast character together with juicy and slightly spicy and piney hop bitterness. It also has slightly mineral, almost salty aftertaste. Medium to full body, smooth and very drinkable texture. Well balanced DIPA with great drinkability.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 6, 2013
Amber/caramel pour with a frothy off-white head. Lots of flecks of sediment bouncing around the glass. Toffee malts, grapefruit, tangerine peel, pine, passion fruit. Good carbonation starting sweet finishing with strong hoppy bitterness. Delicious.

4.3
S_Side_Smitty (766) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a hazy light brown with a medium off white head. Aroma is a nice blend of tropical fruits and malts (there’s some caramel in there somewhere, too). Taste is sweet, creamy malts (almost like milk chocolate) up front and gradually mellowing for an easy finish. The hops are very mild in this one. Different, but very, very good.

4.1
Marstonlad (878) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours slightly cloudy copper with a little but well lasting white head. Aroma is full of strong tropical fruitiness - notes of peach, apricot, orange - and some piny hoppiness and caramel. Taste is quite heavily bitter after some sweetish malty notes early on. Malts form the backbone but the balance is tilted heavily towards hops. Flavours of exotic fruits feature most. Palate is medium to full bodied and smooth. Very intense fruitiness and aromatic hoppiness in this DIPA. Quality beer.
