3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stark hopfiger, fast schon beißender Geruch nach typisch amerikanischem Aromahopfen. Voluminöser, wenn auch nicht ganz so stark wie erwarteter Antrunk mit deutlichen Bitternoten. Diese werden im Mittelteil wieder in den Hintergrund gedrängt, der Hopfen erlange abermals, wenn auch deutlich wässriger, den Hauptstatus. Der Hopfen word dann milder, ohne aber an Fülle zu verlieren. Die Gesamtintensität wird geringer, der Hopfen bleibt führend. Semiger Ausklang mit deutlichem Hopfen, ferner einigen dumpfen Bitternoten. 12/11/11/12/11/11

Thank you Yngwie for sharing this great beer! It has been on my wish-list, and I’m not disappointed! It’s warm orange with a nice head and a fruity, hoppy aroma with loads of citrus, tangerine being dominant. The flavour is nice, harmonic and delicious with lots of fruit/citrus, again tangerine is the most dominant. It also has nice caramel notes that balances the bitterness nicely. It’s very charming and harmonic - yummi!!!! 2444

12-oz. bottle, Batch 7237 from tjthresh. Pours a slightly cloudy bronze, brass with a medium frothy white head, diminishes somewhat to a patchy film, some lacing. Aroma is very fragrant floral and citrus hops, perfumey, caramel malt (meal, grain, straw), slightly toasted, yeast (dough). Moderately bitter and medium acidity, tart hop rind, pine juice, malty balanced flavor with a hint of oranges. Medium bodied, fizzy and dry palate.
