4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled at Cosmic Comic Café, Turku. Cloudy golden, small head. Huge aroma of gooseberry and sweaty grapefruit. Dry with light body and soft mouthfeel. Driven by NZ hops - loads of gooseberry and salty grapefruit. With its velvetty malt and pleasant dryness it is hugely drinkable, despite all the intensive hop flavours. Absolutely lovely!

Bottled at "Birranti in Torre" - Calcinato (BS) .
Clear and medium hazy yellow pale color, optimal bubbly presence and good foamy head of long long duration. Realy fresh and indeed unusual fresh fruity hop nose, good alcoholic equilibrium and pleasant caramel final. Excelent smooth taste, very long hoppy palate and grapefruit body. Long bitter and arid final.

5/I/14 - 33cl bottle from Biernavigatie (webshop, NL) @ my parents’ place - BB: 30/VII/14 (2014-16)
Clear bright orange beer, big creamy solid white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: fruity start, citrus, pineapple, bit grassy, some passion fruits, grains, bit of hay. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: grains, some hay, grassy bitterness, pretty dry. Not as fruity as you would have guessed from the scent, very English tasting profile, don’t know why this is categorized as an American Pale Ale instead. Aftertaste: citrus, little yeasty, very dry, grassy bitterness, slightly fruity. And WOW, it’s only now that I’m entering my review, that I see the low ABV. Very impressive!

On tap at ATG, Dublin. Hazy gold with thin white head. Loads of mango, pineapple and tangerine in the aroma: so tropical and fresh. Crisp biscuity malt in the taste - really highlights the great juicy tropical fruit in there, loads of mango and tangerine. Light citrus bitterness to finish. Crisp and dry. Stunning session ale.
