3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange, with a towering orange-tinted head leaving generous lace. Massive aromatic hop aroma, lots of mango, passionfruit, perfumey lychee, certainly on par with the best of the American versions I’ve had of this style. Sweet toffee malt with the same aromatic hop profile, but with interesting berry notes as well. A little overcarbonated. Very astringent, bitter finish. Delicious.
