bubbleflubber (2144) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Pours a hazy straw-hay hue into the glass with a small white head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose has berries and wet (fresh) hops. The bitter citrus, berries and grapefruit flavors are followed by a long spicy bitter finish. The mouthfeel is bright and crisp with active carbonation. A medium body ensues, quenching thirst with nice substantial complexity. Very good foreign take on the traditional American Pale Ale. Kudos!

Flaske delt ombord på Fridtjofen, RBHD-treff aug-15: uklar strågul med hvitt skum. Innbydende, frisk aroma av New Zealand-humler (stikkelsbær, mango, aprikosmarmelade mm). Nydelig, fruktig smak, balansert og med middels bitter ettersmak. Vi sukker fornøyd, en betimelig opptur.
