3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good, slowly collapsing yellowish head over unclear orange beer, crowned with rings of lace. Caramelly, even chocolatey malts (despite the colour) first; then flowery, grapey hops following in force; lunaria and citrus. Very dry hoppy, bitterish flavour. Obviously C-hops, citrus very present. Dry finish with plywood. As said, dry, but yet refreshing. Medium bodied, slightly slick. Very good, if not exceptional IPA. Why the APA qualification, if the brewer himself calls it IPA on the label?
