At Eurhop festival in Rome-ITALY. Pours dark golden hazy, consistent white head. Nose: cascade hops, mild grassy notes. Mouth: fresh feel, veggies, after rain field grass. Nice refreshing IPA. A bit of amber malts feel although the end is definitely dry and bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy dark orange body with a small off white head. 3+ Aroma is fruity, tropical fruit notes, leafy green touches, melon rind undertones. 7+ Flavour is fruity, sweet tangerine flavour and tropical fruit undertones. 7+ Average plus bodied palate has soft to low carbonation.

Cask?Draft? @ Borefts. Aroma is big fruity and floral hops, some biscuit malt. Very clean. Flavour is medium bitter, quite smooth balance between malt sweetness and the hops bitterness. Again great floral and fruity hop notes.
