Draft. Pours orange with a small off-white head, some retention/lace. Aroma of cheesy hops, tea, pine, caramel malt. Taste is cheesy/pine hops, toffee, earth, bread. Palate is dry, oily, somewhat flat, bitter finish. I really need to stop trying these three month old Euro IPAs. JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2012
Bottled 0.33L. Slightly sour hoppy and flowery nose. Large head. Slightly hazy golden colour. Hoppy and fruity taste. Also some grapefruit in the taste. Slightly sweet. At the end hoppy bitterness. Too hoppy for my taste. tderoeck (9710) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2012

Little cloudy orange beer, big creamy yellowish head, very stable, leaving a very nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: pretty piny, exotic fruits, smelly feet, bit cheesy. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body, creamy texture. Taste: citrus fruits, grapefruit, bit pinky, cheesy touch, then lots of bitterness. Aftertaste: lots of dry, piny bitterness, lasts very long.
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, grain, pine , citrus. Flavour is sweet, pine, grapefruit, malt, citrus, fruit, peaches. OK/Nice beer. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Big white, frothy, head above a hazy orange-straw liquid. The head sticks around for a long time, leaving plenty of lacing as it slowly dies down. Huge aroma of hop oil, grapefruit, malt, pine. Man this is one awesome smelling beer. And it looks awesome as bubbles continue to rise, keeping the head afloat even longer than it should. A nice bitterness up front, a little thin in the body. Mostly just a hoppy flavor with some bready notes. Not as tasty as the smell would lead one to believe. Still good, though. A little more malt character to balance out the hops, and this would be a world class IPA.

Tap @Mikkeller Bar. Orange color with a white head, lacing. Grapefruit and citrus aroma mostly. Flavor is citrus, grapefruit and caramel. Bitter, fruity lasting finish. Very tasty, surprisingly light body though. bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a golden bronze. Slight haziness. Decent creamy white head. Aroma of grapefuit and a little sweet biscuity malt. Touch of grassiness and DMS hiding in the back. Flavours show a little sweetness initially before an assertive hop finish. Medium mouthfeel. OK. thirstyrabbit (1849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy amber body, creamy head. Citric hoppy aroma. Taste is hop bitter - mostly grapefruit and orange peel. Too much dry bitterness and therefore feels a bit out of balance for my tastes. Perhaps nice to pair with some foods but too grapefruity by itself. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Jesse. Thanks. Cloudy dark golden with a fizzy white head. Musty, earthy grapefruit aroma and taste with bready notes through out and a brassy finish. Not bad. JorisPPattyn (10001) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2012
Thick, creamy, yellowish head over hazed orange beer. Something sharp-acidic, but very fleetingly, then classical citrussy USA hops. Hint at banana(ester). Very bitter, woody and even quinine-like bitterness, rather harsh and not very discriminate. Gradually some relief comes into play, with grapefruit- and other citruspeel. Fried vegetable oil, retronasal. Slightly burning MF, very creamy feel from the head, beer well-carbonated. Long sharp-bitter aftertaste. If you haven’t any subtlety to offer, go for the knock-out...
