3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Speakeasy by Põhjala. BB Feb 2016. Opaque orange, thick white head. Full malty base with refreshing tropical fruit and citrusy bitter character. Somewhat jammy at points. Very juicy taste, fruits, peach, resin. Soothing mellow-active carbonation, thick on the palate, fills the mouth very nicely. Quite surprisingly for the mere 5.7%. Lingering grapefruity bitterness. It’s very good, but kinda forgettable - one of many similar.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium white head over golden hazy beer. Medium aroma intensity of warm tropical hop with pine hints. Suggests rich malt and pleases. Firm but not extreme base bitterness, lingers just right, creamy, medium malt body on midpalate, offering slight sweetness which fizzles out while bitterness still hangs a bit. Not bad for me.
