3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 draft: hazy, light orange colour, smells like citrus & floral hops as well as oddly strawberry jam, taste is some orange & grapefruit hops, there is some bitterness present but there is also a lot of sweetness originating from what tastes like fermenting strawberries, also definite malt in here, some flowers, bitterness upfront, followed by the rest, a bit odd, dry finish //// Tried this one again on draft, still not very liking the hop profile on this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasting from January 2008.
Deep set orange body, not hazy, not quite clear either and oily as its swirled. The carbonation is tight, very fine and sparse in its streams to the top. The crown is sadly missing off this one though, barely a few islands of white where the bubbles erupt. Bountiful, doughy and thick grapefruit, cantaloupe and peardrop nose, not piercing but well-rounded, plump and ripe with a good backbone of honey and crystal malts. Meaty, firm mouthfeel. Carbonation bites upfront but its all soft and doughy from there on in. Big ass fruity esters; blood orange, tangerines, grapefruit, all sorts of tropical fruit seem to assault the palate and backend olfactories. Biscuity toasted malts add a generous level of sweetness to it. Pine-nut and pine-needles, a sting of nettles and some biscuity malt lingers after the big, biting bitter peak of the swallow. A little lemongrass and damp fresh herbs build also. Slight warmth is felt in the depths but the alcohol remains well masked. Strong in flavour, balanced beautifully. An impressive APA.
