3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a modest bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up floral hops, citrus hard candy and a bit of a peach like note.
The taste begins with a nice degree of bitter grapefruit hops and tangerine. It slowly picks up a slender sweet maltiness and a faint berry hard candy like note that is sometimes there and sometimes not. Into the finish the bitter citrus hops fade some as it gets a little herbal, floral and grassy with an increased sense of hop flavor. Pretty nice IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Home (thx Tycho!)
Fresh hops pop out as soon as you open the bottle. Some malts too, after you pour. Looks yellowy-amber, slight haze, with thick white head (Everybody likes good head...) and medium carbonation. With 50 IBU and 6% alcohol it is a true European take on the IPA. Although the fresh hops seems more bitter than 50. Well balanced with light citrus, resins and malts. Little fizzy in the end.
Could drink this all day.
