3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a light dirty yellow color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of dry hops with light dry malt base. Taste is a mix between some dry hops which are almost astringent with a non-descript malt base that is also pretty dry itself. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting but hops profile is somewhat too astringent for my taste.

33cl bottle from Ølbutikken. Pours golden with a white head. Fruity aroma with grapefruit, tropical fruits, malt and hints of spices. Some sweet fruitiness followed by a dry bitter finish. Heavy citrusy bitterness in the finish. Quite nice APA, but a bit too much grapefruit flavour. Still quite nice and refreshing.
