Ha un colore aranciato carico, leggermente velata, con un cappello di schiuma non troppo ampio, ma compatto e duraturo.Al palato è dolce, corposa e consistente, controbilanciata dall’abbondante amaro del luppolo che non tarda a farsi sentire.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy brown with a large tan head, aroma of heavy caramel, treacle with the promise of piney citris tones. Initial sweet caramel flavour, burnt toast makes an appearance with a rather unbalanced bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper red colour beer with a weak head and a transparent almost luminescent appearance. No carbonation.
The smell is bitter sweet lichees or strawberries mixed with grapefruits, with some saltiness.
The taste is mainly bitter with a subtle refreshing sweetness. Very dry and bitter in the finish which evolves into a flowery, hayish bitterness. Like biting into a grapefruit but then without the sickening acidness. Well balanced delicious beer. Somewhat flat in the sense of variety.

Pours a deep amber, quickly dissipating head; nose of caramel, pineapple, mango on the turn, strawberry; thick mouthfeel, lasting bitterness poised perfectly with sticky, glucose malts, IBUs well masked. A promising introduction to the style, but how couldn’t it be a little misrepresentative

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Pours deep amber with dissipating off white head. Aromas of grapefruit, caramel, slight mango & smattering of citrus. Great bitter hop hit at the taste, full of lip smacking grapefruit & citrus with a sugary caramel malt backbone. Refreshing iipa that belies its hefty 9.2%.
