4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Resin, eau de Cologne, mango, citrus aroma and flavour. Medium body, some residual sweetness and a strong yet not overbearing bitterness. Extremely drinkable and I’d say perfectly balanced. Very impressive.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle 330ml, pours cloudy orange with small but creamy and long lasting head.
In aroma a lot of hay and cereal with caramel, resin, flowers, herbs, grapfruit and citrus fruits.
In taste very good balanced with medium sweetness and an intensive and nicely underling the taste but not overhelming bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden and the beer is very good drinkable. Really nice IPA.

0.33 bottle from IXI Getraenke Frankfurt. Beautiful color, foam disappears quickly but a very thin layer stays until the end, poor lacing. Citrusy hops, nice bitterness but also with some body the way I like it. A very nice, drinkable IPA.
