Pale yellow colour. Aroma is cirtusy and hoppy. Fresh, fruity taste. Flavour has a sweet and sour feel at first before becoming more bitter. Nice easy to drink beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wholly different level, this one. An ’IP’ and therefore a bit stickier on the mouth. Long-lasting bitter aftertaste. Shockingly abrasive nose. Wow.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Ølfestival 2012. Hazy gold with a small white head. Impressively hoppy. There’s a sweet maltiness but it’s balanced out by the bitter floral hops. Nice. A big honey vibe too. Mouthfeel is pretty full and it goes down very easily. Very impressive stuff. I’ll have to look out for more beers from Del Borgo and beers of this style.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a lightly cloudy off-orange with about 4 fingers of thick white head. Aroma is very bready. Citrus, lemon and pepper. Taste is light bitter and very very lightly sweet. Citrus, bread and caramel with a touch of hay. Full bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Fizzy carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink this again.
