3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle (S-Market, Helsinki)
Lovely grapefruity aroma right from the pour, in the glass there are some nice sweet light biscuity malts. Nice gold, brief tight off-white head. Clean palate, not too sticky, not too watery. Tasty - just some light malt backbone, and plenty of citrussy grapefruity hops. Finish just gently resiny, a little sweet. Slips down easily, could session this, and this would definitely quench my thirst on a hot day. Nice golden bitter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Pours mostly clear and amber with orange highlights and a mid-sized, off-white head. Decent retention. The nose is bursting-at-the-seams with earthy and musky hops - leather, soil, cat pee. Light-bodied and astringent with lively carbonation. The flavor is all about heavy, citrusy, rindy bitterness. Crisp, raspy, Sahara-dry finish. Bitter just for the sake of bitterness. Nope. Not for me.

Pours a gold/orange color, white head. Load of citrusy hops, resin, herbal notes and some caramel malts. Flavor is really nice...juicy citrus hops and malt meld very well together. A very easy drinking IPA!
