Can from Mitra Bunnik, BBE Nov 2024. Clear golden to orange color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma of some mashed apples, dandelion (ok, I read that on the label), some caramel. Quite sweet in taste, slight bitterness, appelmoes again. Anarchy brewing continues to not impress

Can from Dorst, packaged 12/03/20. Dark brown color, short frothy head. Aroma of sweet caramel, coffee cookies, mocha. Bitter coffee in taste, mocha. Supposed to have ancho chiles, but there is not much bite to it. In between a pastry stout and a RIS with additives. Balance is questionable, but there is plenty going on, so still enjoyable

Can from Dorst, dated 01 May 2020. Hazy golden color, medium soapy head. Aroma of tropical fruit, grapefruit, some pine. Soft to medium bitterness, some fruity sweetness. Balance is near perfection. As always, Dry & Bitter nails it again. Its a NE DIPA, but it can still compete with classic DIPAs.

Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, BB 09.2020. Clear amber color, big rocky off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and bready malts, sweet yellow fruit, peach, pine but not in the way hops give it. Grapefruit bitterness, dry pine, cookie and caramel sweetness. Well balanced, but a bit too made up for me. I like to see more from the hops.

Bottle from Mitra Bunnik. Reddish color, short frothy head. Aroma of cherry, cherrypits, slight minerally, hint of plastic, soft spicy yeast notes. No marzipan or sweet cherry candy. Sweetness in taste only from some malts, but mostly fruit bitter, cherry skin, soft sourness, acidic. Quite dry, except for the malty sweetness. Decent stuff
