4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cloudy orange with a sticky white head leaving great lacing. Nose is very pine and grapefruit forward. Quite sweet and lemony. Quite simple stuff but they have done it very well. Sometimes less is more. This beer sums that up. Very straight forward stuff but done fantastically. Light caramel with big hop presence to it. Heavy grapefruit and pine needles. Astringent bitterness to finish the beer and it’s lengthy. Great stuff

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Patricks. Hazy dark orange body with a small off-white head. Very nice and complex aroma of citric fruit, tropical fruit, pine, malt and caramel. Flavor has the same elements as found in the aroma with a nice bitterness, but a bit too sweet for me. By the end of my class the whole thing feels sticky en my mouth. Fine body and a long aftertaste with bitterness and sweet malt.

I wonder what this trying to be? Fruity early but converts to a more typical old fashion style with old hard malts and hops. A little unfriendly albeit not at all ’hoppy’.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Patrick’s. A small, off-white head sits on top of an unclear orange-golden body. The aroma is very, very citrusy, with pine cones and malty sweetness. The flavor has fruity and piney hops up front, with malts in the back. Nice bitterness. Full body, a bit sweetish, with nice carbonation. Bitter fruity finish. A bit sweet this one, but sure tasteful. 130601

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como, batch 082, bb 12-04-14, 7.2% ABV
Hazy blond color with small head. The aroma is hop awesomeness, with pungent fruits: passion fruit, citrus; and light manure. Toffee flavor, very good, with dry and smooth mouthfeel; the hops express all their aromatic components, fruits and resins; bitter oranges, light grapefruit, light passion fruit; the final is lean and bold.
A wonderful clean example.
