Bottle shared at Leighton’s place. Many thanks to Paul for this one. Orange / light amber coloured pour with a halo of white head. Aroma is sweet, orange, floral, light pine needle hop, bit weird on the nose. Flavour is composed of light caramel, biscuit, chewy malts with orange rind and pine. Palate is sticky, hop resin, moderate carbonation. Decent ipa.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Can, thanks to Paul. Lightly hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Light malts, touch of sweetness. Hops start with smooth pine followed by light hop skunk and a little citrus. Bitterness blossoms strongly in the finish, getting a metallic tang. Not bad, finish a bit awkward.

Robe ambrée limpide, timide col de mousse. Arômes de houblons très amers. Pamplemousse surtout, zeste d’orange. Un peu poivré, résine de pin, gazon. En bouche, pamplemousse et pin. Un peu d’orange et pêche. Plus seche que fruitée. Amertume tranchante ou le pamplemousse est encore mit de l’avant. L’indice ibu est effectivement élevé. Corps moyen, texture légèrement épaisse. Se boit très bien.
