3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Pine, ash and lemon. Hints of tomato vine and white wine.
Appearance: Hazy golden body with a medium chalk-white head. Average carbonation. Good lacing.
Taste: Big pine flavour with subtle herbal hints and, strangely, freshly cut tomatoes. Bitter finish.
Palate: Medium body with a luscious, oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation.
Overall: Unusual, but pretty tasty. This hop reminds me a little of Nelson Sauvin, but with less fruit characteristics.
