Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is a bit oxidized with hints of citrus, cardboard, wet grass and some caramel malts. Palate follows the nose but with more focus. Nice grapefruit, citrus peel, pine and round sweet malts easy out the finish with some clean bitterness lingering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, pours a cloudy dark orange amber with a small beige head. Nose is heavily malted, with loads of caramel malt along with resinous hops and a little pine. Flavour is thankfully not over-malted, with lots of woody resinous hops upfront, the slightest herbal quality, and a solid caramel malt backbone. Surprisingly cohesive and well-balanced -- wasn’t expecting much from a Brazilian IIPA, but this is very nice. Well-done.
