4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Sweet, red grapefruit aroma, mixed with some resin and elderflower floral notes. Additionally, there are notes of very ripe, sweet black- and blueberries. And there you have it - forest fruit, resin - this evokes images of a coniferous forest rather than the tropics. Really awesome. Perhaps if those berry notes could be more present in the flavour, then this could be an almost unbeatable APA, but as it is, it does not fail to deliver. Very drinkable, balanced, flavourful and soft in the mouth. Restrained bitterness, a body that is more full than in many style counterparts, and just a tiny drop of sweetness. One of the top APA’s out there.

355 ml bottle @ Naamat
White golden clear beer with big white head leaving lacing. Mild aroma with some pineapple and malts. Flavor is dry, malty, grassy, metallic and herbal. Has a bite of bitterness on the finish, leaving dry malty aftertaste. Thinner than medium palate with medium carbonation. Resembles weirdly a pils, not very refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sunny yellow color, big white head. Pine, malt, grass, wood. Oily, piny hops, along with sweeter malts, no bitterness, no real aftertaste. Beer gets unusually sweet in the end for an IPA. Carbonation is low, smooth mouthfeel, but the beer is rather boring. Slightly bitter touch at the very end for a moment.

Pours a golden orange slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells fruity, malts and caramel. Tastes about the same. Not very special. Average carbo, thin body and a dry texture.
