3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy Orange Amber with a thick, fluffy White head. Aroma is citrussy and a little bit peachy with indications that it’s going to be a bit sweet. In reality the flavour is like Grapefruit essence. Dramatically hopped (which I like). There is a touch of caramel in the background but really, the hops are the star here and they swell in to an all consuming bitterness. A pretty dramatic IPA.

Ottima ipa che racchiude in sé un pó tutto quello che si cerca in una birra di questo genere. Fruttata, agrumata, ottimo equilibrio tra malto e luppolo con un bel finale secco amarognolo.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, big beige head. Smells of spice, wood, citrus and other hops. Medium sweet, quite malty, nice fruityness and some mint in the end. Heavy bitter, very much resins and some citrus zests. Nice IPA, quite true to style and for sure a hop bomb. Still not as punk as Beer Here often is.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle. Hazy whiteish golden. Tall fluffy off-white head that clings to the glass. Bold citrusy and piney hops aroma. Rich and malty. Body is light and the beer appears very drinkable, dangerously so. Smooth texture. Quite bitter, but there is enough flavours and sweetness to balance. A very nice IPA, one of the better European IPA in fact.
