3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
cloudy brown, smooth large beige head.
very nice very US hoppy aroma, strong, quite bitter, flowery notes, malts are there, but in the background. appears a bit more heavy than the 6.4% suggests.Pretty rare for a hornbeer this one is a gusher, foam keeps coming out of the bottle even after pouring. I also found several pieces of something green in the foam coming out of the bottle, looked like a sheaf of plant of some sort, tasted slightly bitter. Flavor is sweet and flowery hoppy, malty balance, does not taste infected in any way. This fresh hoppy dry-hopped flavor is there.. flavor is not that agressive, malts and hops balance giving a very easy drinking bitter beer. Long lingering hoppy flavor.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours clear sark amber with a great fluffy beigish head leaving laces. Aroma is hoppy piny, malty, grassy, fruity, cat bin and slightly sweet. Flavor is sweet malty to start with adding bitterness with nice pungent touch. Plenty of fruits and raisins. Finishes longlived bitter pungent and fruity. Maybe a bit too much pungent bitterness, feels a bit unbalanced.
