3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear coppery golden with a big, rather creamy, off-white head. Aroma is floral, some cucumber, light citric. Light grass. Highish carbonation, fairly light and quite dry mouthfeel. Flavour has grass, caramel malty. Fairly fat and resiny with some citrus and a bit of peach. Long, lingering, sharpish bitterness. Not the best hop, really.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Ledgers. Pours clear copper with a 2 finger creamy light beige head. Aroma is bready with peppery hop. Med body. Foamy carb. Flavor is earthy, lightly malty, and peppery/grassy. Odd that it’s not bitter. Well, it is, but it isn’t NW by a long shot. This hop ought to be good for saisons. The earthiness is in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
All 19 in this hop series are shared with my husband, Anton. It’s hazy bronze with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of oranges, hay, caramel and slightly overripe peel of grapefruit. The flavour is sweet with notes of flower, hay, oranges, caramel, and the finish is dry with a light bitterness.
