A light orange beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has mangos, mandarin and grapefruits, some pineapple. Nice and fresh. Taste has grapefruits, nice and slightly caramelly maltyness, medium bitterness, also notes of herbs. Medium bodied. Tasteful beer, also the maltyness is playing the own role.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle consumed at Jackpot Junction for the family reunion. Pint glass. Attractive golden orange color with some slight cloudy tendency. Minor white head. Nice pine aroma with a pleasant tropical fruit characteristic. Taste is well balanced with a malty backbone and some high quality tropical fruit elements. Bitterness is present but not overwhelming. Enjoyable. Definitely feels like one to add to the stable of go-to options. Just a notch below the Racer 5.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 355ml. Hazy golden amber with a thick white head. This IPA has a bit of everything, the citrus is there, the mango, the resin notes. Some bread and spungecake in the taste. Alcohol notes are limited. There are no really outstanding features and the hop notes are delicately balanced. A well-balanced IPA, in short.

Bottle tap east. I like it. A bit sherbety but very refreshing. Tasty. No lingering aftertaste so perhaps a bit clean but I’m struggling to fault it. Great head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bonne mais pas extraordinaire.
Elle est fine mais reste assez discrète sur ses arômes.
Le nez est très fin, petit fond agrumes avec des notes de mangue.
La bouche est également assez fine, plutôt équilibrée entre un petit maltage, des notes agrumes assez légères (orange et pamplemousse, légarèrement kumquat) et un fond vert, assez herbal.
