Golden color with white head. Real piney aroma and taste with hints of citrus and vegetal. Slightly astringent finish. Good but I can see why this hop is often used with others

Color anaranjado con gran cabeza de espuma de buena retención; en nariz aromas a pomelo, piña, flores y miel, en boca entrada media con suave amargor; bien balanceada contrasta el dulce de las tres maltas con la que está elaborada y el amargor del lúpulo, algo menos agresiva que otras ipas aunque cuando coge temperatura el pos gusto se torna más amargo con final seco.

Sixtel from exton beverege ($100 w/tax). Pours slightly hazy orange with a small white head. I’m a little surprised that a fresh keg doesn’t have more of a head on the early pours. The aroma has a nice bit of pine, orange, grapefruit, mango. The taste has a decent dry bitterness, a nice citrus and malt backbone, and finishes with that distinct FF hop dry bitterness. This is really solid and really enjoyable.

Trying another IPA from Dark Horse this evening from their monster lineup. This is not too bad, it has a nice resinous bite to it. I would say it is quite balanced, but nothing stands out to me. Nice brew. Poured from 12oz bottle

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from La Atlántica bottle shop, Santiago de Compostela consumed at Frank (camper) at Camping Deva Gijon, Asturias, Wednesday 25th June 2014 Pours dark orangey actually more a murky amber with a sticky creamy lasting white head. Once again I have to confess to being somewhat underwhelmed by these beers frm this brewery, I cannot see a BBD on the bottle so cannot be sure how fresh it is, but as Loz suggested maybe they’re not so fresh. There is a hoppiness and bitterness here but somehow the sticky, slightly syrupy incessant malts overide all. Ok A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0
