Huge head and carbonation, the overly prickly feel being the beers only real fault. Lots of swirling helped, and eventually the feel was nicer. Soft even. Soapy grassy herbal hops and sweet fruitiness blend together nicely in this flavorful but mellow ale. Started out ok, but grew on me every sip."

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 33CL from dcmchew. BB June 2014.
Look: cloudy amber, off-white, creamy head.
Aroma: hops - tart gooseberry, orange notes, with some sweet overtones, biscuit, a bit tannic.
Taste: juicy and thick body, tart slightly puckering fruit like gooseberry or unripe quince, zest, some malt sweetness, pleasant light to moderate puckering bitterness.
Though not so fresh, a rich, juicy and enjoyable beer nevertheless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 Bottle... Hazy golden pour with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Great retention. The nose is a fruity, piney medley of grapefruit, passionfruit and resin. Medium-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor drops a boatload of citrus rind bitterness on me - far more than expected. Crisp, moderately bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big, white head, golden, almost clear body.
Medium, citrus aroma, after some time changed to something not pleasant, probably garlic. Aroma could be more complex. In taste beer is quite sweet but there is no proper bitter contrary. Bitterness is low and short. Strong carbonation.
Nice, very drinkable beer, but bitterness and aromas could be stronger.
My bottle was described as American Pale Ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is grass, citrus, and malt. Pours blonde and fizzy with a very shortlived head. Taste is light with grass notes, citrus, and slight lemon. Very understated and tame. Well made but not very remarkable.
