3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Nakameguro Taproom. Served in a stemmed tulip. Hazy golden orange color with a nice soapy white head that lasted almost throughout. Big fruity and resiny aroma present on the nose: pineapple, papaya and pine needles. Very well balanced on the palate with a a very hop-forward bitterness that shines through with a a nice sweet malty foundation to hold it up. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice long dry bitter finish. Solid IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Quite a stinky aroma, some sweetish biscuity malts, but some rough bitterness. Simple light palate, very light for 6%, it’s a quaffable beer certainly. But it’s full, and the carbonation is pleasant. More caramelly aroma later as it warms, the stinkiness subsided and the 5 became 6. Dunno why this didn’t grab me so much, it’s a solid beer, but not a great one.
