2014 vintage; drank 12/22/14 in the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Semi-opaque dark orange color.

HUGE eggnog head (careful pouring!); a curtain of lace.

Mango & pineapple nose, with a hint of cream.

Creamy, medium mouthfeel.

Pineapple flavor up front; creamed coffee on the finish. A hop bite prickles the lips. An odd mix of flavors that are strangely muted; unique, interesting but not altogether great. Worth a quaff though...

From Miguel. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Sword 5. Initially feels soft and sweet, with tangerine-like fruityness. Later the bitterness becomes much more noticeable. Memorable aftertaste

The beer is hazy, dark yellow when you pour it.
The foam is beige / white with big bubbles that disappear at a leisurely pace.
However, leaving the fine grooves in the glass. Lovely aromas of hops.
Behind it citrus, grapefruit, sweet tangerine, pineapple and passion fruit.
With hints of caramel, pine, resin and grass.
The flavors of the hops, passion fruit, citrus, cherry, pineapple, grapefruit.
Tastes a little sweet mandarin, mango. A little sweet at the end. But it is more reminiscent of an IPA than a monkey. Rich body. Medium-high bitterness. Crispy carbonic acid.

A 500ml bottle from batch #942 with a best before date of December 2015 (drank on 23rd November 2015) and poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: It poured a cloudy orangey copper colour with a fluffy two finger off white head that had great retention and left nice sticky lacing.

Aroma: Citrus zest, grapefruit, sweet mandarin and pineapple with hints of caramel, pine and grass.

Taste: Much like the aromas, taste is mainly sweet mandarin, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, citrus zest and grapefruit. There is also some light caramel and candied sugar notes.

Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall: I enjoyed this and it was very easy to drink. It was sweeter than expected even though the citrus and hop bitterness was there in the background.

Pours a murky dark golden-orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, candied citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with earth, citrus zest, and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is fairly old from what I can tell, but it is still quite hoppy and not showing its age in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

Look - Very thick white frothy head with thick carbonation. Bright gold, almost orange color like the label. The head has little retention.

Smell - Hoppy, lightly dank. Wheat. Bready. Faint fruit.

Taste - Wheat upfront with a hoppy finish. Bubblegum. Toasty. Slight red wine in the after taste.

Feel - Body shows a lot of carbonation but doesn't come through on the mouth. Medium bodied.

Overall - I like this. It does remind me Gumballhead which makes sense with Amager's wheat mixed with Floyds' hops.

Large, frothy white head that settles slowly and a rocky fashion. Leaves large chunks of lace on the glass. A bit cloudy to the light amber colored liquid.

Biscuit and light white bread toast are the predominate smells. Light floral hop aroma in the background.

Smooth, light crystal malt provides the base. Straight up hop bitterness--not very distinctive, but it is well-balanced. Leans to the thin side. Light carbonation.
