4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle - Perfect deep copper slightly hazy body with a fine bubbled lasting beautiful white head; Super dense hop nose with a very little elegant freshly squeezed orange juice behind, the hop resins become a little to dense with make the beer lose some needed elegance; Full very soft well fitting carbonation on silky soft textured body, very balanced sweetness and lots of bitterness, again lots of hop resins that dries the body a little; Very long finish apparent with lots of fell and aroma, I dont know how the orange is added to the beer but it has an unfitting harshness from either pit or peel, the orange juice aromas become a little simple and to sweet when fitted with the tons of hop aromas in the finish. Very good beer! And an excellent label!!
