3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden with nice 2-finger head that gradually subsides. Good lacing. Nice and clear. Nice looking, resounding pale ale.
Heavily malty on the nose. Lots of caramel malt. Some herbal notes and a hint of tropical fruits. Perhaps the hop-character would be more pronounced if this was fresher (3 months old).
Initially sweet, juicy fruits. Some peach, orange. Burnt-caramel malt (a little toasty). Very fiery, punch bitter, crisp finish. Bitterness evolves and becomes a little soapy - which is unfortunate. Enjoyed it in spite of all of its character flaws. Bold beer.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light yellow appearance, with foam. The taste of the beer is bitter, full-bodied and dry. In the aroma you find a little bit of young bitterness. Overall the beer gives a full-bodied taste and in the end it dries your mouth totally.
