4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my favourite IPA’s. Full of flavour and aroma, nice appearance. Well balanced even with this much hoppiness: the malty body is still there. This beer is not just hoppy trickery, but a truly nice special IPA.

Bottle 500 ml at home, thanks to Hermod! Poured into a tulip glass, ABV 7%
Light amber in colour, clear body, small off white head, nicely thick, with very good retention. Light lacing left behind.
Light malts on the aroma and lots of hops, grass, orange peel, tropical fruits.
Taste of citrus, tropical fruits, quite bitter and on the aftertaste orange peel, light mandarines, grapefruit, even more bitter.
Medium body, nicely carbonated, very dry palate.
