3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Murky dark orange body with a rather small, lacing off-white head. Strong and nice aroma of citric hops, pine, ripe pineapple, caramel malt and a little hint of blackcurrant. Flavor is quite sweet malty with lots of citric fruits and a fair dose of fruity bitterness. A fine body with a long aftertaste that leaves you with a feeling of both bitterness and sweetness in the mouth. A nice and tasty IPA with much more than just the hop flavor on a light caramel malt base. It actually becomes a bit too sweet after the second pint IMO, but why stick to the same beer all night?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. It’s an unclear, dark golden to amber beer. A creamy, finger-thick off-white to beige head sits on top, leaving great lacings as I drink. The aroma is beautiful, with lots of fruitiness from peaches, citrus, pine cones and a touch of watermelon. A little maltiness in the back. A pleasant bitterness in the flavour, along with the sane fruity flavors found in the aroma. Biscuity malts as a backdrop. Full body, super smooth, and pleasantly carbonated. Fruity, bitter finish with some sweetish maltiness. Maybe a bit on the sweet side, but it’s a really fine beer. Certainly one to get shit-faced on, or just have a few of. 120906
