huge and fluffy white head .
Smell is - for the first time ever - soapy in a good way . Fruity , summer-ish .
Taste is bitter , grainy , way less fruity than the scent gives away , yet it has a nice , perfumy touch ( again , in a good way ) . Nice , balanced ipa . Just misses that little extra something ...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From Q Club. Cloudy amber-tan with huge fluffy tan dense off-white head and sudsy legs. A lot of sediment at the bottom. Smells of sweet malt, maple syrup, very resinous hop. Tastes quite bitter. Hops are slightly floral but dominated by piney resin. Slight almost plastic taste. Medium-to-thick body, quite slick with some foaminess. Overall very bitter and resinous - I expected more citrus and floral flavours given the Citra, Cascade and Amarillo hops - but not bad.

Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Translucent copper pour (some sediment). Aroma is apple juice and a bit Belgian. Taste is similarly Belgian yeasty and plasticky (that hop flavor I dislike). Slight lasting bitterness. Okay but wouldn't get again.
