3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml long neck bottle, poured into a tulip. Bottled 14/8/12. ABV 4.8%
Thick sediment on the bottom of the bottle, I poured as carefully as I could in order not to have it in my glass. Deep orange colour, a bit hazy, I guess some of the sediment madi it in the glass. Huge head, more than three fingers, white and sopay, left heavy lacing around the glass as it went down.
Very nice and intense citrus aroma as expected.
Moderate bitterness on the taste. Aftertaste also bitter, much more actually. Again citrus flavours, but a bit muddy and under the surface.
Medium body, good carbonation. Very dry on the palate.
Overall good IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle (bottled on Aug. 14th, 2012) picked up at the De Molen bottle shop pours with a clear copper body that exhibits thick gold edges and supports a tall light tan head of foam and leaving behind sheet lacing. I love Columbus hops, looking forward to this. The aroma offers up malt infused onions and lime like earthy hop dankess, indeed! The taste delivers lime like citrus hop flavor and then moving into more and more hop bitterness where notes of resiny hops are nuanced by mild dankness and a faint onion sensation. Yummers!
