Muzzleloader (35) - FINLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Can from Systembolaget. Pours in an IPA glass amber with two-finger off-white head and leaving some lacing, but quite poor head retention. Aroma has some sweet over-ripe fruit pine, citrus and malt. Nose is half pleasant, half not so pleasant. Quite heavy bitterness competes with sweet malty body but bitterness rules here. Medium body and medium carbonation. Some resinous, long bitter finish and some subtle nut and toffee notes too.

MiP (15407) - Snderborg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2016
Can, 6.8%. Powerful citric and piney hop aroma. Cloudy orange amber colour. Small white head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma, citric and piney. Nice sugar level, good body. Clean bitterness. If I read the date stamp correctly, it is actually past BBD, but it tastes fresh to me.

Bamsen78 (5220) - Snderborg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2016
Can. Pours hazy rich amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and citrus, with notes of malt and fruit. Bitter, hoppy and grassy flavour with round, sweet notes of malt and yeast and some fruity touches. Bitter aftertaste with grassy hints and estery touches. Decent but tastes more like a Double IPA.

Can. Appearance- amber and very clear, some bubbles rising, a cream thick clingy head which persists. Aroma- caramel malt, bread, hop resin, tangerine, grapefruit, pithy orange. Hint of pineapple. Taste- orange marmalade, malty bready backbone, hops, orange peel, fruit juice, pineapple in the background, some sugary fruit. Tasty, good balance between orange and caramel.

Mindwarp (256) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2016
*Notes* Pours a dark golden, big head and lots of lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste was bitter which covered up most of the citrus flavor. Ok IPA could have used more flavor. Maybe it was a bit old??
