3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG-12. A murky, orange-golden beer topped by a dense, two-finger, off-white head. Some lacings. Rather hopped nose, citrus peel, pine cones and some peach, white sugar and Belgo style yeast. A bit too much on the yeasty side maybe. Rather bitter in the mouth, some metallic hints in the far back, with white sugar, pine cones, resins and a touch of Belgian yeast. Or maybe it’s rather a touch of brett playing. Full body, quite effervescent. Bitter finish.120818

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. BBE 04/2013.
Pours a hazy, murky orange colour with a small white head. Aroma of really fresh Citra hops, some Cascade on the nose as well, but mainly citric hops. Flavour of strong hops, citric tartness, tingling pine needles, yeast and some weak caramel. Medium bodied, dryish mouthfeel and a really sharp, bitter but also overly yeasty finish. Aroma is promising but the yeastiness ruins the show by hiding the bitterness and hops in general. Could’ve been something great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle @ lusikka, BBE 04/2013
Aroma is rather nice with hops, exotic fruits and some gooseberry bush. Flavour is dry and bitter with gooseberry bush and some fruits. Also some sourness with earthy notes making this a Belgian IPA. A bit empty feeling behind all the hops – I think this needs more backbone. The bitterness in the finish is a bit harsh and stale.
