Fresh fruit, more in smell than in taste.
Lot’s of hoppy flavor, but not overdone.

Malty body, bitter and fruity taste of the great amarillo hops. Nevertheless, they could have used more hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange, amber color with a decent white head. Superfruity aromas, with hints of lemon peel, honey and fresh cut grass. Has a mild beginning, due to soft, bready malts, with an uprising bitterness, defined by ripe fruits, mango and grapefruit. Lemony impression gets pointed out very well by the lively carbonation, leading to a fizzy, almost lemonade-like character. After that, sweeter malts get detectable and act as the counterpart of the lemony bitterness, creating an exellent balance. Results in a pleasantly bitter, coppery finish.
