4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A half finger of head on a clear, red/amber colored body.
The aroma is wonderful: honey, lemon and pine.
The taste is superb. moderate honey sweetness balanced by a bold pine and grapefruit bitterness.
The texture is amazing. It’s soft with moderate carbonation.
A top pale ale.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Seems like marries otter malts preface this. The hop punch in aroma is exactly that a citrus hop punch. The malts add such a nice dimension. Enjoyable predicable hop bomb.

12oz bottle from Hippo Beers. Deep orange brown, big foamy head, lot of sediment. Resin, grain, boiled sweet & hop aroma. Soapy dry barley and hop flavour. Sharp with bitter aftrertaste. More an amber ale to me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice citrus hop aroma. Pretty copper color. Normal mouthfeel. Tropical bitterness up front but not to harsh. Treads a fine line between pale ale and IPA.
