3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg @ Vintage, pours slightly hazy orange. Subtle flavourings a touch of summer fruits and berries with a big/huge hoppy bitterness on the finish which lasts for ever and a day. Nothing really on the nose which is the only disappointment.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Cloudyish orange, tight white head ends up as moudy splats on the surface. Really fresh hop aroma, like having sticky fresh EKG buds to rub between your fingertips. Sweeter malts in the mouth. A little bit zesty. Bitter palate, a little sticky as it warms. Slightly hop-heavy, but not aggressively so. I prefered the 4.1% earlier, this just seems a bit overweight and clumsy in comparison.
