3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
6%ABV. Pale Ale.
Tapped out a deep clear amber color, about 14ºSRM.
Nose is IPA like with frank citrus like flavors. There is grapefruit, lemon zest, Valencia orange and slightly sweet perfumed rose-like finish in the nose. Beautiful. Makes me want to stop typing and get that first mouthful in. What any good ale should mak you want to do.
Mouthfeel is carbonated. Pronounced carbonation elevates a rich malty base that has nuts, dark malt, graham cracker, barley bread and stragely, fig newtons; i’m ust free-associating here at this point. This one also has a nice citrus TWANG to it like like a bright SNAP before the slide into more complex hoppy aromas.
There is a very brief hit of cough medicine, then a long slow slide into bitter hops that is relatively brief then a clean cut.
Goes on Favorites List!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy pale amber with a white head. Aroma of mandarins, herbal lemon, pine, bread. Light bodied, lowish carbonation. Bread, some peach and red berries, with mandarins and herbal lemon floating above and some pine and pepper at the moderately bitter finish. Bit on the strong side for a pleasant quaffer.

Gylden brun klar med høyt kremete beige skum. Svært fruktig lukt. Fersken, sydhavsfrukter og noe røde bær. Middels fylde. Mye fruktsødme i smak også, men mild fin bitterhet dominerer fra midten og ut. Noe tørr.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Piekna, bujna piana. Aromat owocow tropikalnych, zywica. W smaku wytrawne, ociera sie o wodniste. Ladnie zaznaczona, owocowa goryczka. Troche zbyt wodniste, ale generalnie bardzo dobre.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of all foam finely sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated slightly hazy light orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The semi-flat semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The thick flavor contained notes of floral dough hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
