4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2015 Bottle thanks to Steve (Beersiveknown), cheers! Aroma: Mango, grapefruit, orange, mandarins, very intensive and fruity. Appearance: Golden cloudy color, head stiff, dense, durable, nice lacing - perfect. Taste: Quite dry (maltiness dominated by hoppiness but present - bit caramelly), full of fruity tastes, mix of mango, citruses, some herbs, spruce, strong bitterness (grapefruit and spruce), tropical fruit. Palate: Dense consistency, light warming alcohol foundation, body is full, soft carbonation, finish is bitter and semi-dry. I don’t really like the style but this one... squeezed nearly all that the style has to offer.

Keg. Pours hazy amber/orange with white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, lemon sherbet and pine. Taste is fantastic - big bitter resinous pine balanced well by sweeter orange/grapefruit notes with some caramel. Great on the palate too. Great brewery.
