oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2016
Draught@CBC2016 (Yellow session). Orangeish amber colour, small slightly off-white creamy head. Aroma is sweet malts along with some nectar and mild floral and grassy notes as well. Flavour is pine, some tropical fruits, mild citrus as well as some nectar, honey and also rather bitter grassy notes. Smooth and surprisingly easy to drink considering the high abv.

onceblind (7313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Slightly hazy golden/copper hue with a foamy ivory head. Lovely and pungent hop nose thatís dank and tropical but also earthy and floral. Lots of melon and pine and citrus pith in the aroma. Big bright citrusy flavor thatís clean and a little grassy, but also has a smooth passion fruit and melon undertone thatís semisweet and bright and pale malty. Bright and citrusy and tropical (passion fruit and grains of paradise mostly with a touch of grapefruit).
