3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle from trade with Countbeer, shared in hotel room with Inbreak. This one pours a
Really cloudy, packed with unfiltered particles and floaters honey orange body that has a massive impressive looking perfectly lacing white head. It smells of fresh grassy hops, I get a good amount of cat piss here, a little bit of blackcurrants and some citrus peachy thing as well. Smells quite nice! It has a near sticky oily mouthfeel to it and the carbonation is just below average. Feels sweet and really fruity in the mouth. A strong malty vase on this little puppy, but still really well balanced with fresh green grassy hops. Ends more fruity with light peaches, hints of apricot and a Lingering light mouthdrying bitterness. Tasty IPA with a high quality grassy burp. Thanks for the bottle Kamiel! 28.09.2013

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent IPA, bit like a Belgian version of it with a yeasty sweetish body. Nice, but it’s good they have made some improvements, this one lacks hop dominance.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel, some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Body is medium and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish, light caramel and fruitiness, piney - some citrus hoppyness. Nice aroma but finish lacks fruitiness (and some of the bitterness found in aroma).

Big slightly fizzy-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, light malts, hops, orange, flowers, citrus peel, hay, leafs. Taste is slightly dry grassy, light malts, citrus peel, grass, hops, leafs, pine needles, hints of cardboard and bark. Longlasting bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.
