4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma - This beer has a very floral, almost flowery aroma, with hints of citrus and tropical fruit, as well as some honey and caramel.
Appearance - Pours a clear golden, orangish body, with a frothy beige head. Some lacing and decent head retention. The beer does look like an American IPA, but the appearance is not super impressive.
Taste - Starts out with a pretty solid hop bite, with a little spiciness to it. Fairly sweet, with hints of honey and toffee. I was getting loads of fruit notes (pineapple, apples, mangoes, some citrus). The after-taste has some moderate bitterness and a biscuity undertone to it. Not very bready.
Palate - The mouthfeel is very smooth. Medium-bodied, low in carbonation, and very soft on the palate, with just a little bit of a pepper-like spiciness (which only complements the general feel of it all).
Drinks well, but I wouldn’t call this beer sessionable nor quaffable. At a fairly high ABV, it goes down very easily, but you will start to feel it in your body, nevertheless.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep golden colour, almost non existatn head that does not hold, not lace.
Smell of tropical fruits, with some caramel notes. Medium body, soft carbonation. Taste of tropical fruits, some caramel and spices, bitter finish. I’m not sure if conservation failed, but it’s too flat and simple.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice golden color with small white head. Aroma was not so great, full of esters, bananas and maybe a little notes from hops. Sweet taste without bitterness also full of bananas and esters.
Maybe all of that was caused by long sun exposure in shop or something else.
