3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle @ Biskopen. This is really cloudy almost straw golden looking one with a small slightly bubbly just off-white head. Really fruity nose. Citrus, a mild sweetness. Definitely lots of fruits going on here and I’ll go as far as to call it quite elegant. Refreshing to drink. Some grainy traces at first. Feels light oily in the mouth and it’s below average on the bubbles. Continues with a mild herbal hint, old still citrus, and a grapefruit bitter round finish quite nice stuff this. 26.07.2014

330ml bottle at home (expiry end 3/15). Hazy amber pour with a medium sized white head. Strong fruity notes on the nose (mandarin, pineapple, lychee) with resinous spicy hops. Flavours are similar with a zesty juicy malt bill and a decent resinous dry hop finish. Palate has a lively mouthfeel and medium body with oily texture. A superior IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
IPA yes but the grape must component appears to drive some differentiation. Clear grapey note on the nose but less apparent to taste as the hops take over. Quite firm and bitter but there’s a pretty underlying edge of sweet fruits and confectionary. Grapefruit finish,
