4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle and draught. I’d love to know the additional ingredients in this because this is one hell of a tasty and interesting beer. Lots of zesty and spicy tropical fruit (guava and others) and citrus with a certain degree of spice that I can’t pin down. Just a crazy aroma leading into a bitter and dryish flavor with just the right amount of toasty malt. This is on one hand very much like an IPA, and on the other just its own animal. There aren’t many IPAs these days that I try and immediately feel like I need to have again, but this was like a breath of fresh air into the genre. True innovation, not just food coloring or something.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Teku glass. Golden, medium hazy with medium, semi-densed, white head. Good lacing and medciore head retention. At first medium malty aroma - mainly caramel and toast. Somewhere in the backgroung some ligh to medium citrus and piney aroma. Taste is medium bitter with strong malty (caramel) backbone, which balance the beer hoppiness. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Finish is medium bitter and semi-dry. In verall caramel-based IPA, with some hints of citrus. Not as good, as I was excepted.

660ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Woh, that’s a sweet caramelly aroma, some fleshy fruity hops. Nice peachy colour, hazy, small off-white head. Super sweet taste, quite sugary, some fruity soap. Sweet ticky mess. And a sweet sticky mess too. I can, however, drink this, even though it’s a sugary mess. Finish pleasantly hoppy and bitter but way too sweet.
