Spiced citrus flavour on a backbone of herbal hops. Fresh and lingering bittersweet ending. Medium bodied. Perfect thirst quencher (25.01.2013).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 23/2/2014. Pours a murky dark golden with virtually no head. Has a very pleasant slightly spicy, fruity aroma. In the mouth, you get rye bread, citrus and stone fruit, caramel, nuts and spices. The bitterness is firm but not over the top. Has a medium body and quite lively carbonation. It’s by no means a typical IPA, but it’s a really lovely drop.

Extra luppolata e extra gustosa. Le note floreali e di frutta tropicale dei luppoli avvolgono la bocca, preparandola ad un incontro amaro inenso e appassionante che sfuma in sentori citrici. Mi inchino alla reale birra!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Milky yellow/brown with a lot of yeast sediment. Thick white head emanates floral, grass, resin, and herbal aromas. Body has an oily mouthfeel from the hops with fine carbonation. Hop bitterness comes through well at the finish leaving a citrus flavor. It’s just that first sip that I’m not keen about. Lacks malt balance, but there is a backbone of toasted malt in there somewhere. Need to sip a little while.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Dutch’s. First pour from the keg: completely cloudy amber color. Good thin off-white head, leaves good dots and short ropes of lace. Medium-plus body. Very smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish, not ultra dry and soft like some euro-IPAs can be. Nice balanced aroma of orange citrus, light pine, and good caramel, lightly toasty biscuity malt. Some toffee, light bit of spice. Moderate bitter, light sweet taste. Very solid IPA, better than expected. Very smooth, balanced, flavorful, and easy drinking.
