3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is of amarillo with the sweet citrus fruits, orange some tangerine, grapefruit and elderflower. The flavor follows the nose with tangerine, orange, grapefruit and wheat. The body is light with a dry and watery mouth feel. Overall a refreshing and tasty summer beer, but waaay too expensive being on such a low ABV.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flowery hops, definitely sorachi ace, on the nose. Very little malts involved with the taste, the hops are dominating the taste - flowery and very bitter hops. A very nice and light drink for the Summer.

ligh body, tons of grapefruit, lots of hops, big lingering finish. Highly drinkable. Hops bitterness just sits there. Amazing complexity for the strength. Very good.
