3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy mid-orange, with a beige head.
Off-dry, medium to full body, high bitterness, creamy CO2.
Hoppy taste (no way!), spruce, apricot, caramel, resin, grapefruit, chocolate (?), yeast, grass, slightly earthy.
I can’t shake the feeling that the beer seems a bit "untidy", there are different flacours all over the place, but they seem put together at random. (2013-01-26)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ever-so-slightly hazy, red-orange colour, with the just off-white-to-white head. Aroma is citrus hops, a bit soapy, some grass/hay. Taste is well balanced, not too sweet, with a nice subtle(ish) bitterness all the way through. Texture is oily, with light carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33 bottle from Il Pretesto Beer Shop
Pours clowdy amber with big, soft off-white head.
tropical fruity (mango?) hops aroma, not so strong.
lots of bitter hop at the first taste, with fruity notes in the nose. long bitter final.
some malts in the aftertaste. average body, quite fizzy texture.
maybe a little too bitter, but what else to expect from ten hops?

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Smells great with a very strong tropical fruit aroma. Flavour doesn’t quite match the promise of the aroma - well balanced hops and restrained bitteness with a condsiderble malt presence. Restrained, balanced and subtle.

I’ve mastered walking... fast, slow, whatever really, I’m okay with it. I blend in. I’m guessing humle are hops. Wow, warrior and tomahawk. Great names. I’ve always, genuinely, wanted a tomahawk. Funkdoobiest rap about them. I wouldn’t scalp anyone. I’d just walk with it, all expert like. A bit like an oik with a tomahawk. Nice up your area.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is thick hoppiness, some notes of sour sweet sweat (!). Some iron in mouth, but mostly very solid IPA.
