3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 11%. Powerful hop aroma, grapefruit and mango with a hint of urine. Cloudy dark grey copper colour. Good stable off-white head. The flavour is very bitter with some alcohol bitterness. Followed by a rather sweet note and later yet alcohol burn. It is quite extreme with bitterness and alcohol, but there is some citrus fruit in the hoppiness. The bitter finish gets a bit much rather quickly. A good beer, but in small quantities.

Tropical fruity beer with a high bitterness, american hoppyness, lots of dry and grapefuity bitterness, nice beer.
