3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaske: Ravfarvet helt klar øl med et fint lille skumhoved. Citrus humle er meget dominant i duften som ellers lægger klart op til en APA. Smagen er igen tydeligt citrus med en ok maltsødme til at balancere. Lidt tydn mundfylde og lidt endimensionel.
