jamestulloch (3994) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy amber body with a thick off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of fig, orange and caramel biscuit. Flavour of blood orange, parma violets and herbs. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. Very hoppy - its just a pity Centennial is used so liberally, as the parma violet dominates.

Couleur orange fonce trs trouble, peu de mousse beige, gros dpt. Nez trs fruit : pin des vosges, orange, mandarine, raisin, caramel. Attaque trs amre, amertume bien persistente. La premire bouche est pamplemousse et la rsine, ensuite viennent les autres agrumes : oranges et mandarine, puis lalcool, le miel et le caramel. Trs bonne longueur, bouche trs volutive, trs bon !

shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from World Beer Market. Aroma is boozy, sharp citrus fruitiness, grapefruit, plasticine! Taste is nice, initial light citrus bitterness, sweet and boozy, malty, and then a hop burn at the end. Minerals. I like this as it slowly reveals its stuff rather than slaps you in the face. Something a little creamy about the finish too later on down. Pineapple, keep finding that in beers at the moment. I like it!

Bosskie (870) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2014
Nice copper colour, lots of yeast chunks, weak white head, opaque. Citric smell, subtle cherry, hint of mandarin, some leather. Taste is fiece bitterness with surprising sweet undertone. Finish is astringent, lots of grapefruit peels, almost numbing the lips. Refreshing.

Rich71 (83) - Rijnsburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Bitter bier dat lekker ruikt en smaakt maar in de verste verte niet kan tippen aan de meeste amerikaanse double/ipas. Heeft een mooie kleur maar bijna geen schuimkraag. Is veel te duur voor wat je krijgt.
