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.

33cl bottle. Pour is clear golden with thin white lacing head. Aroma mostly hoppy and citrus, some pine as well. Taste very bitter, good malts, no sweetness at all. Feels a bit oily in the mouth, little to none carbonation. Aftertaste balanced bitterness. Great, tasty and quality product.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear orange color, topped with a decent white head. Retention ok. Malty aroma, some notes of fruits also in there. Starts with a hint of fruity sweetness, followed by a decent hoppy body and nice bitterness in the end. A good one. Nothing extra special about it, but still nice.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kullankeltainen, nopeasti häipyvä vaahto, kirkas. TUoksuu hieman märälle nahkatakille, karamellisuutta ja humalaa. Maku alkaa hyvin katkeran humaloituna, kehittyy karamellisemmaksi ja loppuu hieman sitruksisena ja katkarana.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very nice orange body. Unfortunately, the nose and taste are really poor. It’s drinkable for sure but I’m not really impressed...

Drank as a draught. Very nice! The beer is definitely an ipa. The taste is a bit sweet and quite soft.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours very light almost like a lager. Aroma is filled with banana. Taste is malty even a bit stale with citrus hop finish. Very disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, deep golden beer with a thin filmy head. Light bitter lemon scent. Flavour is hoppy citrus with a touch of other fruit (apple maybe?) coming through giving it quite a mellow quality. Not spectacular but very drinkable.
