Hazy amber color; medium sized creamy head. The aroma, although not too strong, is very pungent, with citrusy fruits, cedar, passion fruit; very satisfying. The dry toffee flavor is almost completely hidden by the hop here (and this is not a bad thing); still, the toffee flavour could be cleaner… The hop carries a god mix of fruits and resins, aggressive in a good way; there is some bitter orange, cedar and passion fruit. Long final. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a heavy clouded orangish body. It also has a nice big and quite lasting almost creamy off-white head. Nice fruity and hoppy aroma. Pine cones and some caramel. Much the same in the flavor: Piny with sweet caramel before it ends in a nice lasting hoppy and bitter - almost soapy bitter aftertaste. Nice stuff. I quite liked it.
