2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught at Bruuveri, 20121010) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, pine and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were pine, grass, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Both in the aroma and the taste there was a weird unpleasant stinging character. Without it this one could have been a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Bruuveri. Poured slightly hazy amber with a bubbly, lasting white head. Aroma has tropical sweet fruitiness, hoppy, inviting. Flavor has tropical fruits, (mango and kiwi comes to mind), malt, herbal notes and a grapefruity bitterness, and a biting hoppy fruity finish. Refreshing, tasty IPA.
