Amber with a soapy lacy, lasting, white sticky head. Smells of grapefruit citrus, caramel, malt, pineapple and mango. Medium crispy oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of sweet toasted malt with caramel and an overall feel of citrus grapefruit, pine and pineapple. A decent IPA with lots of satisfying charm

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy, orange beer with a hansom and big, quite dense and blond head. The nose is fructose and fruitfull, some sweetness, belgian fruits, nicely tropical, mandarin and also other citrusfruits. Taste is dryer than aroma, but not totally dry, nice fructose, mandarin, grapefruits and pine needles. The end is then more herbal. Good balance between the bitterness and sweetness. Medium bodied, slightly harsh carbonation, but still nice to drink. The label said that yeast is bottom fermenting, well that is not bothering at all, the good beer in the quite simple package.
