Hazy orange in appearance, with airy/frothy white head. aroma: toast, grass, quite sweet. Quite sweet in flavour too, lots of caramel with a nice bitterness. The bitterness from the hops lingers nicely in the aftertaste. Quite a decent beer gyllenbock (10210) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle. (gift from a colleague, thanks Wolff),
Slightly hazy amber/orange with a white head. Sweetish with toffee, grapefruit, malt and fruit. The finish was nicely bitter. A solid one, the best beer from Ireland that I have tried.

sample at norseman 1696, Dublinelbernays (1735) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 28, 2014
hazy pale amber-gold, fruity aroma, moderate bitterness, peaches and orange peel.
Bottle at home from Blackrock. Pours cloudy amber with lasting white foam head. Lovely lacing. Aroma is spruce, pine, grass, citrus. Big caramel malt base, with a nice orange rind bitterness. Lovely balanced IPA. Best I’ve had from an Irish brewers. Lovely. beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JUN 24, 2014
500mL bottle. Deep amber to almost a maroon color, small to medium off white head, some small lacing. Appetizing but muted aroma of grapefruit, flowers in full bloom, and caramel toffee. First sip had me thinking this was a little too malty for my tastes but when allowed to warm up a bit, the bitterness came out and really packed a punch, the more I had the more I began to love it. Truly one of the best Irish IPA’s so far. garthicus (2967) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from the Drink Store. Odd branding compares to the other trouble beers. Anyhow. Appearance: light orange, medium pure white head. Aroma: over ripe mango, citrus rind, sweet, malty, a lovely floral perfume nose. Flavour: tropical fruits, sticky mouth feel, mango, toasty, caramel, citrus peel, doesn’t taste 7.6% , fantastic long bitter sweet finish. Lovely. Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
50cl bottle. Hazy gold orange. Really sweet tangerine on the nose, some floral notes and spice. Sweet stuff continues in the taste, lots of orange, sweet floral notes, little buttery off note, spices. Bitter to finish, pine in there. Not bad, this brewery is taking a positive new approach
