3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Whole Foods, Bowery 330ml ($6): Pours a murky brown with a nice beige head as per normal. Aroma is light citrus balanced against the typical Mikkeller malt. Taste is slightly bitter, with a citrus touch. Lightly sweet malt. The Galena hop ain’t fascinating. I could see how it could add something nice to another hop, but by itself, I am not surprised that this is not often used.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours hazy amber, with medium off-white foam head. This beer was brewed in 2011, so is not bitter nor hop-aromatic anymore. Because of Dranken Geers: huge beer shop but not serious for the shelflives! More than 3-4 months for a single hop IPA is a non-sense. All the identity and typicity of the beer is in its hop variety. Hop flavours and bitterness decrease really quickly.
It smells old ale with some remaining hop notes but very light.
Clean with a good mouthfeel, great beer but not an IPA anymore.

Hazy deep red - brown beer. Pale cream coloured head. Soft palate. Creamy malt. Love this hop! Passion fruit with a touch of lemon. A little tropical fruits in the background. Mild minerals in the semi dry finish.
