4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016 Appearance: hazy pale golden colour with beautiful foam that remains for a while. Aroma is very fruity with a distinct estery quality. Spicy and peppery note - that and the esters give it a bit of a Belgian aroma. Flavour is also very fruity and estery and also a little Belgian. Quite spicy and a little peppery, some lemon flavour. Dry and bitter and complex finish, which lasts a long time and is really great. Hops only brings out its herbal qualities in the finish. Delicious Italian IPA!

Muddy copper. Fruity, malty, carmely. This beer has the best frothy head of any beer I’ve ever seen. Bought in SZ, enjoyed in XF. An amazing IPa. I cannot believe it’s Italian.

Feels old.. hops mostly gone, light sourish caramel, bit herbal, bit pine. Not disaster, but quite boring

Draught at Keyaki. Quite malt-forward and heavy which is surprising considering the ibu, subdued citrusy hops, decenlty dry finish. Never really been mpressed by their bres and probably won’t bother going forward given they are now an overpriced macro treat.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle. 05/2017
Hazy honey gold body, holds a dense white head.
Reasonably intense aroma - floral citrus hop, cut grass, pine, touch of tropical/pineapple sort of character, toasty malt in support.
Good full body, kinda chewy & creamy, moderate carbonation.
Punchy palate - lots of dark citrus, piney hops, lots of caramel & toasty malt, good hit of bitterness.
Yeah, this is pretty good.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
