3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight dark golden. Foamy ringed head. Creamy peaches and cream hop. Fairly plain Jane bitterness, nothing problematic but foamy and peppery enough to carry through. Biscuit, honks of sweetness and a smooth finish and tense cloying finish. Sweet malt linger.
Bottle, Gunnar Tasting, Thanks to Karol!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks to Cuso:
Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium to more smaller sized, vast thick and slowly changing creamy snowy soapy white foamy head on top of a hazy beautiful orange colored beer. Looks nice.
Aroma is a floral mix of crispy malts, hops, hop fruits like peach and grapefruit, some light flower tones, some herbs and crispy smooth plant/floral tones and some creamy soap.
Flavours of hops, soap, bitters, hop fruits, citrus, grapefruit, blood orange, malts, floral and just a good hop fruit floral bitterness.
Aftertaste is good bitter, floral, some hops, bitter fruit and light dry.
Low carbo, soft creamy smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied and creamy light oily ish texture. Very nice: crisp and refreshing with a strong bitterness. Reminds me a bit of the classic English IPA.

Bottle from Cuso drunken with McTapps. The first sip is that crazy bitter in the end that after this the whole beer gets a tremendous sweetish and fruity taste. Great aromas of sweet oranges mixed with other citrus fruits. It tastes how it looks. Huge.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle with many, many thanks from Cuso. I had very high hopes into this one, because I just love IPAs and this one looked very interesting alone from outside. It pours out in a hazy orange-amber colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of aromatic hops and light soap. Taste of fresh aromatic hops, oranges, thyme, citrus peel, coriander and grass. Very, very bitter finish, little bit dry ending as well. I enjoyed this beer a lot, but the finish was just a little bit too bitter for me.
