4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pors rather clear amber/orange. Small white head. Smell is intense ! tropical fruit, very crispy maltyness in the back. THIS is how a hoppy beer should Always smell like ! Taste is sharp, bitter, much maltcrisp, some green hops, some pine. Some tropical fruit. The taste here, is nothing less than awesome. The minor factor is def the body. It’s a very wattery beer. the intensity of the taste is quite good, compared to the body, but a thicker beer would also amplifie the intensity to make it truly great. the imperial version of this ( please, make it alike, only thicker ) would be - if it existed - one of my top favorite beers, i think !

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a translucent mid-amber with a two-finger beige coloured dense foam head that retained very well and laced very well. Carbonation low, slow and fine. Aroma of strong grapefruit and moderately strong pine; quite hops driven for a pale ale. Taste of caramel malts plus moderately strong pine and grapefruit; hops a bit more subdued than in the aroma. Light to medium body. Crisp and slightly dry with a moderate length nice citrus hops bitterness on the finish. Good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells of pine and citrus. Crisp mouthfeel. Slightly bitter aftertaste. A touch on the one note mouthfeel, needs a little more creamy fullness somehow. A touch tart/sour in a not good way.

Bottle pouring clear golden brown with partial white head. A popping aroma of caramel, floral, spice and dried fruit. Sweet but balanced with some bite. Clean APA. Love the initial citrus hop while it finishes biting spice.
