330 ml bottle @ Patricks. Pretty clear, deep orange body with a small tan head. Aroma has dry fruit, orange marmalade, caramel malt and warming alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, dry fruit, pleasant bitterness and warming alcohol. Full body and long, sweet, fruity bitter aftertaste. A nice, big sipper. andriesradu (705) - ROMANIA - MAR 1, 2014
33cl Bottle @ Animal Bar. Pours dark orange with a small white head. Strong aroma, sweet, honey, hoppy. Heavy sweet, caramel, moderate to heavy bitter flavor also light alchool but the 13% is perfectly hidden. Carbonation is average. CacheManyHose (713) - HONG KONG - FEB 28, 2014
Pours a crisp-looking but opaque amber-brown with bubbly white head and legs that don't last. Aroma is overwhelmingly of honey, with some faint hop in the background. Taste starts similarly of too-sweet honey, then becomes strangely plastic and a bit vegetal and hoppy. The hoppiness is bitter and slightly grassy but nowhere near as forward as I'd expect from something that calls itself an IIPA. As with the other Revelation Cat beers I've tried, this is ambitious but combines 2-3 big flavours with no balance or nuance, and also has that syrupy sweet flavour that tastes like melted rock candy. Disappointing. HKdIPA (799) - HONG KONG - FEB 28, 2014
Dark amber pour very little carbonation. Very nice caramel sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is horrifically sweet and syrupy. Hoppy and vegetal flavors too but not in a pleasant way at all. Another miss from revelation cat.

From a 33cl bottle shared by Gunnfryd at the bus on RBNG-14.
Pours hazy orange to deep amber with a small off-white head. Quite hoppy aroma with cat piss, herbs, caramel and malt. Quite sweet, hoppy and caramely with a quite intense and lasting bitterness. Long bitter aftertaste with herbal notes. Decent, but a bit too sweet for my taste. (2014-02-15) Rune (12635) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
330ml bottle shared, txt to Gunnfryd. Muddy orange coloured body. Just a ring of bubbles at the top. Ripe orange on the nose. Ripe citrus, pumpkin and malty sweetness mixed together in a rather heavy drinking beverage. Noticeable sweet alcohol. Slow sipper qualities (Tour de Østfold, RBNG 15.02.2014).

Bottle 330ml @ Førtito Bar & Bowling, Sarpsborgyngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Pours hazy amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, alcohol and dried fruits. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, sweet, fruity and bitter finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Bottle, at 42. An unclear amber colored beer with a small, light beige head. Lots of hps on the nose, with citrus peel and pine cones. Lots of malts too, caramel and some brown sugar. The flavor is very bitter, with a fine malty sweetness in the back. Pine cones, citrus peel and sugar. Full body, soft carbonation and a certain warmth. Long finish. Overall, sure a nice one, although too sweet and warming. 140215 Theydon_Bois (19200) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle in my hotel room, Trastavere, from Brasserie 420 - 10/02/14.
Very lightly hazed vibrant amber with a moderate beige covering that retains well.
Nose is caramel malts, earthy hop notes, light booze strains, sticky pine resin, bubblegum, candied sugars, ripe tropicana.
Taste comprises light mineral tones, candied oranage peel, caramac maltings, ripe grapefruit, sticky mango, pine, boozey ring.
Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, lightly cloying sticky feel with semi aggressive hop bitterness in the the finish.
Very mellow for the ABV, drinkable indeed - it only took me 10 or so minutes to work through the bottle on my own before I went out for dinner, carries a boozey lick for sure but not 13% worth!
