3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 330ml (Beer Hunters)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Fresh hayish hoppyness with notes of pineapple. Light-bodied. Fruity, slightly grapefruity with some pine needles. Of course watery, but very tasty for this ABV. Perhaps the best low alco "IPA" I’ve had.

330ml bottle from K-Citymarket Sello
BBE 07/12/13 - Pours lovely golden yellow with a foamy head. Aroma has a lot of grassy and fruity hops, some malts and spices. Taste is has a lot of hoppy notes, but little malts to back them up. Some soapy and lemony hints as well. Finish is light and musty with some fruity and bitter notes. A bit unbalanced, but still quite impressive considering the low ABV.

Bona textura i amargor amb menys de 2 graus. Llŕstima que la falta d’alcohol li dóna un final aigualit i sense cos en boca.

Draft at the Bishops Arms Copenhagen. Just what I needed on a hot summer afternoon. The bar tender insisted I taste it first as she didn't think I'd like it, but she was wrong. The taster seemed a little sour but that quickly disappeared. Fruity aroma with a grapefruit flavour and a hint of bitterness. Very refreshing and I'm looking forward to the next one!

My Bottom Line :
Piney hops and their citrusy tips dominate this obviously lean brew, building a highly convincing reason to drink even more...
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A rocky head of foam settles atop the cloudy honeyed gold.
-The flavor profile and aroma are simple, but so effective.
-The coniferous bitterness is leveled with that of the brew’s moderately high level of intensity.
-The effervescence could be toned down a bit for my tastes.
-The board said it was 0.8% abv, but it tasted more like the 2% range, which is how it’s listed here.
On tap at Ale&Hop, in Barcelona.
