Bevuta in bottiglia, all’apparenza risulta ambrata con una buona schiuma chiara con discreta persitenza. Al naso sentori di pane, agrumi. Al palato la sento piacevolmente amara, sentori di agrumi con finale e erbaceo.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber color with off-white head. Aroma has some fruity hops, even a bit of fruity tartness. There is also a light caramel malt undertone. Taste is also slightly tart and fruity, hoppy, slightly bitter on the finish. Medium to light body, good amount of carbonation. Quite good overall, just the tartness is a bit weird for the style.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured out a brown Amber. 16ºSRM.
Nose has some nice pine, orange, tangerine sweetness but with a lemon tartness.
Mouthfeel is soapy. There are full-bodied roasted malt flavors of caramel, toffee, and a wonderful creme brulee sweet richness, this is accentuated by some nice vanilla hints. There is a beautifully rich sticky date pudding sweetness. There is marmalade palate with bitter, sweet, tangy and even the briefly alcholic tang of a wonderful Orange marmalade that I had made in Tasmania. There is also the palate of a single malt whisky with a slightly cloying mouthfeel, then a subtle smoky sweetness then it’s all in the back of throat and nose.Nutty and sweet like freshly roasted chestnuts.
The hop ride is bitter up front with a resinous hyssop like body, then sliding into bitter slightly herbaceous haze.
Finish is short medium and has the aftertaste of a macadamia chocolate chip cookie.
Goes on Favorites List! All times favorites list!! A real sleeper hit because I came at this one with zero expectations.

It pours a dark amber color with a large tan head. Aroma is citrousy, grassy, with soft notes of biscuit and caramel malts and apricots. Taste is similarly well balanced between the sweet caramel malt notes and the grassy floral citrousy hops. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromat: przede wszystkim truskawka (!), co w połączeniu ze słodkimi owocami tropikalnymi, cytrynowym muśnięciem i trawiastością, oraz grepfrutem daje ładne połączenie. W smaku bardzo wytrawnie, goryczka rzeczywiście spora, ale deklarowanego 120 ibu nie czuję. Wysycenie niskie, pijalność wysoka. Bardzo dobra IPA.
