Keg at Craft. Dark orange/amber colour with golden bubbly head. Aroma is hoppy, bit of spice, jammy. Taste is strong resin hoppiness, bit of fruit, strawberry. Surprisingly soft and balanced for a hop monster. Not at all harsh. Another good’un from Evil Twin.

Very smooth and a bit on the reserved side. Light fruity hops, some sweet malts, a bit of the tropics, too. Good.

330. Pours a murky medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that never goes away. Lots of lace. Big grapefruity nose, very powerful and acidic. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, caramelly, nutty mid palate with an unbelievably dry grapefruit finish. Very acetic.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark brown beer with a creamy, medium and beige head. Aroma is tropical fruity and fresh, peaches, some pine forest. Taste is fruitfull, that change to more bitter and piney also some grapefruity sourness, balancing caramell. Medium bodied, nice carbonation and drinkability. Overally, quite highly bitter and slightly piney and heavy, more fruitness would give more freshness.

Brown and hazy. Lots of thick head (propably and partly because I poured it into a Duvel glass). Aroma is plum, dark bread and pines. Flavour is roasted malt, pines and fruits.
