4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml brown bottle, corked. Golden in colour, hazy. Fully formed thick and billowy cap. Leaves a good amount of foamy sheet lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma has a nice attack of spicy hops up front, strong herbal notes, grassy, some lemon and orange sweetness. Flavour is herbal, spicy and grassy with lemon peel. Clean and dry finish. Hoppy and herbal aftertaste. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, tight beaded carbonation. Nice presentation from the bottle to the glass. Very drinkable, I am an instant fan of this hop. One of my favourite beers I tried in 2010.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy golden, with a frothy white head. Nose is loads of dill. Loads. Some grain and a bit of sweetness too. Flavor is slightly grainy, some more dill, yeasty, a little dank, and a bit of sweet caramel on the mid palate. Finish is dry, a tiny bit tart and a little bitter. Complex, interesting, refreshing. Really good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick white head atop lively hazy straw body.
Unusual aroma; unripe melon, green herbs, floral spice, some coriander seed even with a bit of underlying cereal.
Light body, still alludes to some alcohol, lively but soft carbonation.
Plenty of spice on the body; white pepper phenolics, aniseed, nutmeg/mace, light cracker biscuit malts. Finishes with lingering dryness, moderate bitterness.
Odd combination. Without knowing too much about the hop, it would appear to be quite a funky beer.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Looks the business with light golden colour, lasting head/lace. Good CO2
Aroma of lemon grass, kaffir lime and slight coconut, with belgian farmhouse yeast notes. Flavour carries on the same with tangy, sprits citrus on the tongue.
