4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Una birra di gran classe dal profumo delicato e deciso. Intenso il profumo floreale misto ad una agrumato presente e mediamente persistente.
Molto elevata la carbonizzazione tanto da non riuscire sempre a dominarla.
Il retrogusto Ť amaro con persistenza di arancia e resina.
Nel complesso una birra molto raffinata con un bel colore biondo ramato.

Looks like itís been scooped out of the Mississippi until itís held to the light when the amber glows. Got a wiff of citrus and hemp but it was poured with a big head, so not a lot to write home about..... until I had a big gulp. Like my buds were bitten by an amarillogater. Bitter, fruity, creamy and oily. Then itís gone, leaving a lovely lingering taste on my tongue and aroma in my ítash... and a fuzzy head. Like a sordid one night stand. Sssh. Donít tell my wife.

11.2oz bottle in a snifter. Pours amber with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a little caramel malts and some light spiciness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, but not the best of the style.

Shocked that I can pick this up in AZ! Amazing! Juicy, flavor-packed, citrus-filled brew. Bright, floral nose. Grapefruit is pungent. Orange peel, lemon zest, and tangerine rind all present. Surprising ABV...not at all distracting. Yum.

Great beer, very sophisticated, complex -not difficult- and original, with the hop as the absolute main character. The first you feel is its voluptuous and fragrant aroma: fruity, with pineapple, lychees, maybe grapes and jelly baby touch, warm and full. Impressive, really. The head, froathy and white, is the perfect complement to its magnificent colour: beautiful golden with orangish glitters.In mouth, you can distinguish two phases (maybe itís the only drawback: the change is too abrupt): the first, very brife, is spicy, citric and slightly sweet; immediately the hop gets in and dominates the overall. Very bitter and longlasting flavour, refreshing and dry, with a peculiar texture between sticky and rough. Anyway, a very original, personal and interesting beer. Great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours transparent golden orange with a thick white head. Nose is citrus, grass, pine and rock candy. Taste is well bitter. The malt that usually accompanies a bitter is non existent. I don't know whether to count that for or against it. This is more of an IPA. It's excellent. Mouthfeel is crisp and coating. Light body and a long finish.
