2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. One finger foam. Copper quite clear. Tasted this before 1 1/2 year ago. Didn't score it due to too much tasting (the other 19 hops). Exp. 0313. Low caramalty aromas. Can't figure out if there is any hoppy aromas. Maybe lost at this moment. Stale low bitterness. Not impressed by this hop. Stay away.

Bottled, and probably quite old. Hazy amber color. Decent head, mediocre retetion. Some earthyness and caramel upfront. Quite bitter towards the end, stays for some time.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy dark amber color with a lively pour and a thick foamy off-white head that burns away gradually. Patchy lacing. Aroma of grainy malt, fruit and hops. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, dark fruit and earthy hops. The finish is fruity with a short hoppy aftertaste. I assume this bottle is older despite being bought recently, but it is tough to blame the store and not the brewer for not providing dating. Decent overall.

Hazy orange brown with a ton of sediment and a little ring. Big caramel malts in the nose. Taste is caramel and resinous. Big bitter after, fairly sweet and dry. Okay. Maybe a bit past prime.

Un poco flojo este lúpulo. ..pero no esta mal...quizás demasiado turbia la cerveza. .pero bien balanceada. ..
