4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. BB N/A?
Served chilled in a mug.
Pours yet another picture perfect glassful; persistant creamy offwhite foam atop a copperish gold body, with only the slightest haze.
Plenty of juicy hops straightup, pine and citrus are obvious and good proportions, I get ripe stonefruits, spice, grass and some dried apricot, and sultana leading onto a backdrop of burnt toffee and subtle nuttiness. Seems to change with each whiff.
Mouth-coating body, nice creamy carbonation, resinous hops seem to cling to my tongue, yet not dryness and astrigency is well controlled.
Lovely hops on the body, plenty of citrus rind, woody pine, stonefruit, melon, leading onto dried fruit and spice. Malt body is in good proportions, biscuit and toffee. Finishes with a firm bitterness and lingering tart berry-like fruitiness that just makes me want more.
A tremendously well-made, perfectly balanced and flavoursome APA. I’d have another (and thensome) if I came across it again!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Colore ambra, abbastanza limpida. Schiuma bianca estremamente compatta. Aroma molto buono, agrumato e floreale con un bel naso di frutta, pesca e albicocca. Al palato entra subito dolce ma con un deciso retrogusto amaro e luppolato. Ancora agrumi e frutta. Buona carbonazione e corpo medio.

33 cl can. Pours a quite hazy, dark orange amber, thick off-white head, low carbonation. Aroma is crammed with juicy and fruity American hop flavours. Mouthfeel is medium, wetish and well carbonated. Taste is very pleasant. Fruity, citrusy and piny, very well balanced with the solid malty backbone.
