Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes fruits, malt, and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of fruits, straw, alcohol, malt, and a bit of alcohol, leading to a dry bitter finish. The alcohol burns slightly on the the tongue. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a cloudy deep golden with an off-white head. Fresh citrusy and piney hop aroma. Medium body, a little sweet caramel and fruit with massive herbal hop accents - almost medicinal. Very hoppy finish. Loads of hops here, but they donít come out all that pleasant. 080411

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle from Firefly, Vancouver
Cloudy orange-amber color; small head. The aroma is nice because itís not only hoppy, fruity, but also very sweaty, and fresh; grapefruit; very light tones of countryside, cereals, manure. Good body strength, toffee flavor, quite sweet but still with the mouthfeel agile (I prefer this than thick Double IPAs); prepotent hopping, with a balanced mix of fruity and resiny character. Luckily this is fresh, and really excellent.
