Bottle at home from ales by mail
slightly hazy amber with pillowy beige head. Pithy mandarins and Dusty hopsacks, fruity. Sprightly carbonation, pithy, slightly chalky pithy bitterness. Dry finish. Quite austere and tonnes of pith...would make a good aperitif

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops and fruit, the latter being rather dominant for a beer within this style. Bitter, hoppy flavour, wi well pronounced sweetish, fruity notes. Bitter afteraste. Nice but tastes more like a DIPA without the ABV peculiar to that style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
7.2% bottle at the GJBF Osaka 2013. A dark yellowish gold color, the aroma has a hint of smoke but not as strong as with the Bronze. My favorite of the three Celts I tried today. A bit of smoke, the bitterness is more balanced-quite an interesting beer, I liked it.
