3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a very lightly cloudy golden orange with small white cap. Aroma is fresh citrusy hops, maybe even a touch of pine, and some caramel. Flavour has zesty grapefruity and gentle piney hops, and a mellow caramelly malt. Modest bitterness in finish. Really nice big flavour for the ABV - I could session this big time.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl) Cloudy, orange-golden colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Intensively flowery and fruity aroma with notes of citrus, grapefruit, pineapple and other exotic fruits. Moderately bitter flavour, light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Dry and a bit slim malty base but with loads of floral and fruity hops, lingering into the slim malty but also quite lasting finish. Aromatic summer drink. 29.VII.13

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber colour, white head. Fruity aroma, tropical fruits, pineapple, melon, quite floral, metallic hints. Bitter flavour, bitter hops, touch of malts. Quite thin body, but nice for the ABV. Light metallic finish, fruity, lingering watered down grapefruit. Nice brew, thirst quencher! Like a miniature IPA, which is nice since it just became IPA-day (according to local time).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
31/07/2013 330ml bottle. Ambrata pallida, schiuma biancastra-giallognola a grana grossolana, non molto persistente. Al naso confusa, sentori fruttati, agrumati e di resina, diacetile. In bocca si conferma in condizioni non ottimale, leggero diacetile, monotona, per nulla fresca. Corpo leggero, carbonazione media. Mi piacerebbe riassaggiarla in condizioni migliori.

Generous lashings of citra hops take this one straight in near the top of my favourite IPAs. The hops deliver a lovely broad grapefruit and lemon tang.

Bottled. Amber colour with a very slight haze and almost no head. Loads of grapefruit on the nose, with honey and pine too. Refreshing, sweet citrus flavours and a dry, hoppy finish. Very well balanced. Perfect beer for a summer BBQ!
