harrisoni (18001) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Clear amber lasting cream head. Hop resiny aroma. Some toffee biscuit sweetness in the mouth. Very smooth in the mouth. Quite hoppy but not over the top. No real burn on the finish. The ABV is hidden well. If I made a DIPA this is how I would want it to turn out, balanced and hoppy but not super hoppy, good biscuit and sweetness in the mouth and good bitterness on the finish. Good

Amber. Not much head. Sort of a dull hop aroma - theres lots in there, but theyre dull. Earthy, but the bitterness is low for the style. The malts, which are slightly caramelly and a little bit earthy, dont mix well with the hop character... not something Id get excited about.

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2014
Can. An unclear, golden colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is sweetish, with apricot notes and resins. The flavor has a light sweetness, a bitterness level to deal with it, some maltyness and resiny, piney hop flavors. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting fruity and bitter finish. Sure a decent one, not too bitter and not too sweet. Wouldnt mind repeating this one. 140613

mcberko (16617) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Pine trees on the nose, with peaches and sweet malts to back. Flavour of piney hops, grapefruits and other more subtle tropical fruits, and earthy caramel malts - bitter dry piney hops on the finish. Quite solid though nothing distinguishable about this that makes it a standout.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle @ Whiskey St. Hazed orange pour with a white head. Lots of sweet peach and some caramel malts. Big time grapefruit, some orange rind, and lemon peel. Pretty decent bready malts and some tropical fruits. Not bad, decently hoppy but certainly sweeter than I typically like.

bhensonb (14891) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Pours copper with a good beige head. Aromas of floral and fruit. Fullish body with froth carbonation. Its quite nutty, and very floral. I dont get the nutty, but thats how Im interpreting it. Theres a lot of flavor. Some citrus rind. Finishes more bitter than sweet. Id say its better than DFH 90M. My mouth is starting to shrink. Really good stuff.
