3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is murky dark golden with a nice off white head that retains fairly well in this glass - sticky lacing is present here as well. The nose I think is the highlight for me - a nice resinous piney hop profile coupled with nice citrus and lemon notes and a bit of caramel - The flavor profile seemed a touch underwhelming on this one - I was expecting more considering the hop in question - Its a fairly nice brew , either way.

Sampled on 9/2/2011. This India Pale ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 33cl bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is malt, cereal, fruity, sweet, and melon. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are floral, citrusy, grapefruity and melonish. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Lots of bitterness, which seems to hang around and not leave. Definitely has that Citra hop character. Touch of sweetness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

All 19 in this hop series are shared with my husband, Anton. It’s hazy bronze with a huge, creamy head. It has a delicious fruity aroma with notes of citrus and exotic fruits. The flavour is sweet with notes of loads of citrus fruits, but oranges and grapefruit stand out. I also find exotic fruits, and the finish is slightly dry and bitter. This hop is truly nice!
