3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: pineapple, peach, papaya, basement; Appearance: pale golden, vanishing large foamy head; Taste: medium bitterness, strong sweetness, slight sourness; Palate: fizzy carbonation, slick texture, medium body, bitter finish
Peculiar strong fruit notes and almost gruit bitterness in the foreground. Probably unbalanced.

Pours blurry golden, little head smell is weak but not unpleasant. Taste is very carbonated at first, strong bitter taste comes quickly after the first sip, but it does not hold. It turns into a sour, unpleasant aftertaste. Needs more balance.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle@home (from Bier-Deluxe) hazy deep golden colour with plentiful rocky white head. Aroma has lots of citrus and pineapple with some mandarine and grass innthe background. Taste is lightly sour and bitter but mostly quite sweet and fresh. Palate is medium bodied and little sticky with crispy and lively carbonation. Hopfenstopher Comet IPA is not really an IPA as the hops are very much in the background and sweet but fresh tropical fruitiness is on the front. Easily drinkable but could really have used a lot more hops.
