Bottle at Chriso tasting, London. Pours hazy gold with a creamy, white head. Nose of dry pine and toasty bread. Medium sweet flavor with more dried pine, dried leaves - it’s pretty dry in general. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry finish, lightly astringent with pine, grass and faint orange rind. So so. fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012

Hazy amber color. Nice aroma, the hop provides a delicate fruity side. Strong body, it has a good caramel flavor, and strong hops, mainly resiny and piney; long final.
Powerful but easily drinkable.
Bottle at Chriso tasting (from the Space Needle gift shop, Seattle - be warned it was $2 cheaper downtown, not to my surprise but I didn’t want to risk not getting hold of one!) 18/11/12.
Hazed light amber with a thin off white head that soon clears to the edge.
Nose is caramel malts, rip mango, orange, grapefruit and a touch of wood.
Tastes comprises caramel malts, pine, bitter tropical fruits, light tea bag flavour.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a bitter finish. mcberko (19870) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of mandarin oranges, resinous hops and loads of caramel malt. Flavour of citrus hops, dry orange peel, some mandarin oranges, and just enough malt backing. The mandarins and bitter orange peel linger nicely. Very solid IPA. saxo (19583) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2012

Golden pour with a white head. Nose is grassy with some orange and grapefruit hops. A bit sweet and malty with some bread and caramel notes. The flavor is also fairly sweet, sort of surprising for a modest ABV beer like this. Grapefruit, orange, and some light floral notes. Grass, a touch of pine, bitter finish, and sweet bread and caramel malts.
