I like the passion fruit thing going on, the aroma is nice, but i thought this was ’hard’ drinking, not for any not pleasant things, but that I thought each mouth was like a hammer blow, and I wanted something more measured and longer in drinking, this is one of those short drinks, it all happens up front, then a gap, and then you are left with a lingering thing that makes you frown a bit, as if like you didn’t enjoy it, making you a bit gun-shy.

Drinking this a couple of weeks before its best-by-date on the opposite side of the world, so it’s not anywhere near fresh. The punchy hop aroma that others mention has been replaced by the smell of concrete after a rain, the ’crystal clear’ is now hazy straw, yet the taste and palate are damn good. My god, I imagine this would be in the mid-to-high FOURS fresh.

Bue à la pression. Grosse amertume présente tout le long de la dégustation et qui s'intensifie en finale. Bel équilibre général. Finale sèche. Faut aimer le houblon !

Alluring aroma with hints of citrus, pine, and passionfruit. A hop forward full bodied flavour follows - and makes it an excellent brew.
