3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle from Firma Bier.
Amber, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, resin, passion fruit, citrus candy, bsicuit.
Taste follows this, with a quite heavy malt backbone, but also with more bitter, resinous notes.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, medium dry, piney, zesty, resinous, a bit herbal, malty.
Very nice. Really lovely, crisp nose, taste is also nice, but maybe too heavy, the malt backbone and bitter level are almost like a Double IPA. Very good piney finish though. Overall not among my favourite IPAs, I prefer it less malty, medium bodied, but a very good style example nonetheless.

Mid-palate: continual creaminess, (lvl-6)-sweetness, tangy backdrop, (MAIN) orange, honey, toffee malt

Summary: Inconceivably smooth. A zen-like balance of sweet, creamy, bitter, and alcohol. The finish could be slighter longer but otherwise flawless.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a clear orange with a medium-sized off-white head. Grass, twigs and resin on initial nose, but as it warms up lots of orange marmalade, grapefruit and tangerine come out. Juicy citrus with some malty sweetness, but a solid dry bitter finish that lingers. Classic-style IPA.
