Sigmund (7470) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
500 ml bottle conditioned, a gift from my beerpal Olav. Orange colour with floaties, hardly any head. Strong spicy (weird) and hoppy aroma, also notes of red wine vinegar. Nearly void of carbonation. The flavour has an unpleasant peppery and hoppy bitterness, and not much else. In other words: A fucked up bottle. Drainpour.

Keg at SIBA BeerX - Rich red body, foamy white top. Big citrus nose, grapefruit and tart lemons, expecting a big hop taste which you get. Smooth bitter-sweet grapefruit again, after taste of kumquat and tangerine. Very nice and deceptively dangerous!

minutemat (5478) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Keg @ The Rake. Pours an auburn colour, mildly carbonated with pithy lemon and orange and an almost medicinal tongue-numbing bitterness. A great double IPA.

Bottle - pours an amber colour. Looks OK.Aroma is all sweetness. Medium body - big foamy mouthfeel which isn’t unpleasant. Also, nicely dry and bitter. Tasty.

Garrold (5269) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Cloudy amber. Thin but lasting, white head. Big aroma. White cherry sourness with a muscovado sugar sweetness. Earthy, dry taste. Massive, oily finish. Pretty massive overall, really.

zacgillbanks (5180) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a hazy orange beer with a rich pineapple and citrus flavours malt and biscuit notes with slight earthy, slight woody finish.

The_Osprey (7984) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Cold bottle. Hazy orange with small head. Smell is tangerine, grapefruit. Very inviting. Taste is more of the same, perhaps with some fruit salad sweets too, nice balance, light bitterness. The more I drink the more I pick up a slightly sour sharpness which makes it less drinkable. There’s a lot to like about this. I have some reasons to mark it down too, but I’m going to give it the benefit of the doubt.

spacecube (1717) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
500ml bottle, pours slightly hazy golden brown with a touch of yeast sediment. Caramel malt backbone is there but the hops take control. Mainly seville orange tangerine flavours, very fruity but not as bitter as it might be, the balance is pretty good. Really enjoyed this.

DanielBrown (4502) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013
Keg at Beerd, Bristol. Very good bitterness - some UK hop hardness and a real bitter twang to finish. Aroma, flavour, drinkability. Yep. Like this a lot.

bytemesis (8384) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle, and my 80th country rating - big thanks to Ben! Pours hazy orangish amber with a medium off-white creamy head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is big time west coast IPA - citrus, passionfruit, cat piss, pine resin all present and accounted for, thank you! Flavor is the same, with a bit of caremely sweetness overlaid with a thick sticky bitter hop resinous. This is west coast IPA thru and thru, and not a bad effort at one at that! Medium body, tongue coating oily mouthfeel. Tasty brew, so glad #80 wasn’t a pale lager :)
