3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Aroma is crisp with a lot of soapy pine and citrus. Tastes crispy dry with a sting in the middle. Grapefruit, pine. Lingering nice aftertaste, a bit watery. Overall maybe a bit too dry. Carbonation is medium, spot on here.
Basically a run of the mill IPA, with some side notes towards APA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Pivnice Hostina, Helsinki 26/02/2013. A hazy, hale, reddish amber with a medium, yellowish-brown head. Aroma hits you over the head with grapefruit and grapefruit peel. Some passionfruit there as well as other exotic fruits, some lemon as well. Taste begins, somewhat sweet, but also bitter. Again lots of grapefruit and its peel. Dries up towards the end. Some caramel in the background as well as light pineapple. Palate is fairly light though the stiff stinginess and carbonation make up for it. Splendid job again from BH. Would definitely be a good quaffer if available.
