3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
After getting a box of good stuff from SlovakSniper, I didnt know where to start, this was the first one i grabbed in the dark. Cloudy golden with a fizzy white head. Bigtime citrus on the nose, a bit of pine too. Huge pine flavour. Citrus and flower as well. Tastes like the time i filled a grapefruit with grass and ate it as a salad. I never did that. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dry and hoppy. I am a hophead but something about the combination of hops in this does not do it for me. There is something lacking in the malt too, the beer is a bit too thin and unbalanced. There is also a grassy hay like taste. A bit of a hybrid between an APA and IPA but lacking in malt body to be a really good APA but while bitter there is some oomph lacking in the hop flavouring to make it a really good IPA. I am still searching for this breweries replacement to Hoppy their fine even if unbalanced bitter IPA that the previous incarnation of the brewery produced.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Glden blonde topped by a generous white head, lasting. Sweet citrus and piney aroma with a hint of catpiss. Medium body, medium carbonation, aggressive bittrness with just enough malt backbone to support it, but it finishes very dry and bitter. Tasty but unbalanced.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale, golden orange color with a discrete head. A lovely citrusy and flowery aroma, which boosts promises, that are fufilled by a finely bitter taste balanced with grapefruit and blood orange hints. A very refreshing brew

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 341ml. Hazy blond body with a decent white foamy head. Aroma is slightly dominated by maltiness. It carries hoppy and grassy hints. Its fresh malty/hoppy taste carries grapefruit notes and ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Well done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2013 Bière limpide, dorée et coiffée d’un fin col blanc laissant une franche dentelle au verre. Des arômes caractéristiques et soutenus d’agrumes et de conifères sur une base joliment maltée. Superbe amertume tranchante. Elle offre un bon corps, une effervescence moyenne et une interminable fin amère... Une APA particulièrement bien réussie!
