4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear deep golden with a fluffy thick white head. Gorgeous nose of light floral pine notes and freshly cleaned hotel room with a wee bit of orange zest. The flavor is big and bold with a large orangey bitterness with lots of floral resins and pine notes, but there’s also this wonderful toffee and caramalt boozy backbone. It’s a striking balance that’s both super hoppy and bitter but also super malty. I think there’s a wee bit of spruce in there as well. Lovely hop flavors of floral resins and fresh picked leafy earthy hops and citrus rind, followed by a lot of caratoffee.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ ZZT X, courtesy of dEnk. Pours a clear dark golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is pine resin, grapefruit, citric hops, light grassy notes, alcholic influences. Flavor is very bitter, loads of West Coast hops are present here, like liquid rays of sun in a glass. Great stuff to drink in the summer, too bad it’s winter right now. Long bitter and refreshing aftertaste, medium carbonation. Awesome beer, great stuff.

Fresh hops floral, grapefruit, very well developed. Delicious soft yet present bitterness, so well made. Totally American, in the best of ways. Juicy mouth feel, super drinkable. I expected much and still got impressed. (Bottle gifted by Menno and John, many thanks!)

Bottle from Voldby. Bronze pour with a huge frothy head. Nose has caramel, pine, some exotic fruits. Taste is pretty dull at first but as it warms up there’s an explosion of caramel, mangoes, grapefruit and biscuits. Tasty stuff!
