3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
American-style IPA with three hop variaties. Off-white, medium thick head, coppery colour, somewhat darker than usual for an IPA, practically clear. Aroma of grapefruit, passion fruit, caramel, spicy hops and orange peel. Sweetish onset, citrussy, malty, in the finish strong peppery hop bitterness as expected. Good IPA with pretty colour.
