The color is copper to light orange, slightly hazy. The head is rather soapy and has medium lifetime. The nose is very pleasant; I’m getting muscat, tangerine, herbs, and an afternoon walk in a pine forest. Upon taking a mouthful, the malts attempt to unfold their biscuit flavors when suddenly the hops of four varieties strike with floral bitterness and tangerine peels, herbs, grape seeds; the dry finish really sticks around and leaves the flavors of hazel nuts and tannic tangerine peels behind on the palate. Given the strong flavors, a more lively carbonation wouldn’t hurt, but it is very enjoyable. A hoppy delight.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Gold copperish with minimum white lacing head. Notes of citrus, earthy, caramel, pines, spruce, herbs, slight chocolate. Nice tasty Ale with good many flavors. Not too bitter but a good nice balance with sweet, bitter and all the flavors makes this a very drinkable brew.

Formou pouca espuma, porém persistente. Aroma floral, típico de uma IPA. Amargor moderado, tanto no gole quanto no retrogosto. No geral uma IPA bem equilibrada, com ótima drinkability.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clean bodied, only lightly misty. Hoppy yet smooth and very excessive. Certainly not imperial in modern (American) terms. However due to the clean yeast and smooth light bready malts it’s will certainly works as IPA. Just an accessible version with American ipa. Drinkable, bit ends a bit too soft. Quaffable. (33cl bottle from Bootlegger)

Pours a minimaly hazy orange color with a quickly disappearing white head. Nose has basic IPA notes of citrus fruits, pine and caramel. Taste is dry with a medium bitter finish. Carbonation is fizzy is the palate surprisingly light, the alchohol is well hidden. Very nice and well balanced IPA.
