4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper golden with a huge, nice and creamy head, that leaves huge islands of foam, a thick lace and nice curtains on the glass. The aroma has nice and fruity hoppy notes with lots of citrus, papaya, mango, spruce and malt, that gives hints of caramel. The flavour is very nice and harmonic. The fruity hops are the main part with the same delicious notes as in the aroma combined with a nice caramel base. It’s a truly delicious beer!

SIgnificant grapefruit C hop aroma, quick fading head, lots of lace. Bitter like an ESB dying but very drinkable on a scorching Saturday. Drying aftertaste, tasty complex bitterness,like the hops, citrus, well malted, well carbonated. Some of the fresh homebrewed taste from this sub-style.

22 oz. bottle, pours dark copper with a small white head. Grassy hops, pine and citrus on the nose, more reminiscent of an IPA. Flavour of smooth, resiny, piney hops, grass and citrus. Certainly one of the best pale ales I’ve tried yet.
