3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11th January 2015
Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, semi dry and with decent fine carbonation. Smooth malts with a little unsweet toffee and just a bare trace of grain. Hops start piney with a light skunk note. Light and ripe orange morphs in to citric peel. Pinch of hop spice. Light dry finish. Hangs together well and I sank the 750 in no time. Not blowing my doors off but has a great drinkability.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle from De Molen Beershop
Pours dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramely malts, toffee, citrus, pine and resin. Taste is grassy, piney, resinous and citrusy with some caramely malts and sweet toffee notes. Finish is lingering bitter, crisp malty, grassy and citrusy with loads of pine and resin. A classic west coast IPA, but doesn’t feel super fresh. Still tasty, though.
