3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour producing a slightly hazy body with a semi-diminishing white head. Inviting flowery, citrusy aroma with some malty caramel in the back.
Crisp taste with medium to high bitterness and definite citrus in the taste. Caramel is still evident but rathes subdued, finish is bitter and semi-dry. Light body but smooth texture.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 500 ml bottle, the beer poured a clear darkish amber with golden highlights and a tight white head that persisted. Aromas of pine, tropical fruits and floral notes on the nose. The taste starts off with fresh fruit before a big hop bitterness comes in, but washes away in the back end that’s mainly biscuity malt. Seems like it wants to be an IPA, but just pulls back at the end. Surprisingly, the finish is light and clean; but there’s a really great aftertaste that lingers on the palate. Balanced, smooth and very refreshing. One of the best beers I’ve had so far this year.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L bottle. An orangey amber body, covered by a spotty layer of blond bubbles. Honey-scented malt aroma, offset by a distinct grapefruity hop aroma. Medium body strenght. Taste is boldly bitter compared to the relatively low abv. Toasted, light caramelly malt flavor, and a mild citrus fruity hop flavor. Resinous bitterness linger in the finish.

Smells good and almost wonderful. The taste is good but it takes something. The aftertaste is left for a while. Drinking this beer closer to Christmas might be wrong but so good it is. Could this be a double IPA, this would probably get top rating from me.
