3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Il Pretesto.Murky orange with medium compact head. Sweet hop aroma, citric and piney. Fruity hop taste, but dominated by full bitterness from the first sip to the aftertaste. Anyway the pine and winey notes are not covered. While warming, more flavours came out over the bitter, also flowers and honey. Some cereals in the final. Quite carbonated for the style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Kulminator
Pours yellow-ish amber, huge white creamy head . Very fuzzy
Smell is pure hop ( pellets ) with a corn-malts aspect .
Nice intense hoppy taste, bit bitter . Sadly, the big mix makes some specific hoparoma’s to be lost in the crowd . Very nice drinkability .
Very good beer, but the idea sounded better ( all good things combines became more like 1 big mass taste , so the fact that they used for instance so much Sorachi , is almost irrelevant here )
Good beer nevertheless

Flaske 0,33l spandert av Rune og delt under samling hos ham 6 Feb 14. Mørk gylden. Veldig høyt tett skum som etterlater mye lacing. God frukt/sitrusaroma. Smaken litt diffus. Mangler identitet.

330ml bottle bought at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen in May 2012. A lasting, frothy, beige head to a copper coloured body. Lacing rings down the glassware. Restrained aroma of ripe oranges. Really well blended hoppy taste, pineapple and tropical fruits shine through. Malt-fruity endnotes. Velvety mouthfeel. Nice. Shared with Finn (Tromsø 06.02.2014).

From Tap. Sweet tofie in smell. Weak foam but long lasting lacing and murky color No prety at all. Easy bitterness at start, but long aftertaste that is bit overbearing in the end of glass. Was served bit too cold, when warmed up was better.
