fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2009
Hazy amber color; medium creamy head. It has a very nice hoppy aroma, fruity (with sweet oranges), light pine needles and sweat. The body is strong enough, it has a good caramel flavor, I would probably like more sweetness (here almost absent) the final is quite powerful, getting a bit harsh, and nutty. Starts well, ends less well.

Very soft. As beer leaves the mouth grapefruit rind bitter comes out. Pretty bitter. Pretty good. Very well balanced in the mouth, followed by nice bitter. Interesting how this works with every mouthfull. Quite good ale.
