UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 27th October 2012
Very hazy dark amber beer, good off white head. Smooth palate with nice fine carbonation. Light lemon sherbet nose.Good malt base with a little caramel and rye spice. Nice orangey - tangerine hops but with a good touch of Sorachi Ace like creamy lemon. Finishes with mild spice and hop bitterness. Cracking beer!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of chocolate, harsh malts and some bread. Flavour of strong and disturbing metallic notes, harsh malts, bread, syrup and berryish notes. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a crisp bitter finish with the same metallic notes which pretty much run over everything. Not good and probably ruined.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark brown with huge and dense pale brown head. Arom lots of fresh hopps, grape, citrus. Taste hoppy, bitter, the bitterness leaves no place for taste the malt, an american style IPA. the rye isn´t really possible to detect. I´ve become a bit tired of these american style IPA with their offensive hopps.

Bottle back at base camp, Utrecht. The pour’s deep amber with a tiny head. The nose is salted watermelon fruit, some wood, berry, and skunky hop. The taste is funky watermelon fruit, some pissy wood and yellow apple. Hints of bubblegum sweetness. Nice clean grain. Slight burn on the finish. Medium body, active carbonation. Impressive.
