One of our favourite American hops; all about the fruit. Think blood orange, orange zest and citrussy goodness fruit, the fruit is balanced by floral notes in the most classic of new wave IPA hops.

olio (9278) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a medium sized head. Aroma is grape fruity and somewhat resinous with hops, mild orange zest and pine needle notes also. Flavor is caramelous and tropically fruity, a bit sweet but the grape fruits cut it through a bit, mild piney notes with hay and dried fruits. Thick oily palate, doesn’t feel quite fresh but definitely the best of the bunch. Hop profile ok, a bit too sweet and resinous.

sebletitje (9268) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, batch# 065, BB 11/03/2015. Orangée-ambrée, col crémeux beige. Arôme est fruité tropical, rétro subtil de pamplemousse assez léger accompagnée d’une note fleuri, base maltée similaire aux autres versions. Palais est fruité laissant pointer une fine amertume, le tout reste un peu huileux avec une certaine épaisseur et belle effervescence. Garde cette base maltée typique, léger fruité vert.

Clear dark orange beer, fizzy irregular yellow head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, some melons, caramel, sweet. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish, pretty bitter, fruity, pineapple, citrus, bit metallic. Aftertaste: metallic, bitter, little medicinal bitterness. Not bad at all!
