Cloudy appearance, suggesting a good beer. Aroma was surprisingly low and non-descript. Malty taste with plenty of punch. Good, but a touch underwhelming to be honest KansaiBeerLvrs (5498) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 18, 2017

A deep copper orange gold with a thick head and an aroma that is initially fruity but on first sip I felt this was either old or heat damaged. Very sweet and syrupy with a pine and fruit hops and hints of mint in the finish. Syrupy sweet and bitter. Stick with the dark beers from them.

Dark copper, huge thick beige head. Smell of grapefruit, citrus, caramel, hints of cabernet grapes, malts, herbs and spices. Medium sweet, nicy malty flavor, caramel, resins, pine citrus and spices. Heavy bitter, resin tail. Quite nice
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 Pours orange with medium head. Aroma: malt coupled with citrussy and kind of grassy aroma. Taste: start with a malty feel and ends up with a grassy and herbish palate. john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2017
Bottle. Bought Aug 2017 at GBBF; BBE Sept 2017; Drank Aug 2017 - Clear orangey gold in colour. Medium creamy off-white head. Very Malty; heavily malted, toasty, caramel, toffee. Fruity; grapefruit and orange citrus, rind. Bit spicy. Hoppy; good hop bitterness, piney hops. Big sweet malts meet bitter citrus fruit and piney hops. Lingering bitter finish. Quite dry. Near it’s BB date and probably not at it’s best. Nevertheless, a punchy brew. Decent enough. (2017-08)

Bottle at home. Somewhat hazy orange with a medium white soapy head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Quite bitter with nice fruity sweetness. Pine, tropical fruits, citrus and malts. Nice! yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2017
Bottle, at Duggfrisk. It pours an unclear, dark orange colored body and a dense, beige head. Lots of pine cones in the aroma, some tropical aromas and sweetish malts. Citrus zest too. There’s a good bitterness in the mouth, with malty sweetness to balance it, still it feels rather dry, especially towards the finish. Full body and a nice carbonation, with orange zest, pine cones and some tropical fruits. Long bitter finish. Delicious. 160820
