4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amberisch-orange coloured beer with a very nice long lasting white yellowish head. Aroma is herby and has fine refreshing accents. In the nose you can notice pine needles, lily’s, wet dog, camiile tea, lots of dry peels of nut skin, and pallisade hops. This beer has a full taste with a dry caracter. The mouthfeel is round, the fine carbonation gives it an extra lift up and brings a nice finesse in this brew. The taste has hints of grapefruit peel, agrum, dry herbs like laurell leaf, sage and lemongrass. It also has a soft smoothness of maple sirup and nuts. In the finale there is a boost of forrest like bitter accnets like bark, dry wood, nut peel, cigare box and tons of hops with a crisp lemongrass like sharpness in the end.. Very nice IPA with very recognizable Palisade hops.

Moderate hoppy nose, very fruity notes, not so aggressive as other US hop varieties. Muddy dark amber body, with a smallish off-white head. Very fruity flavor, pleasant and piney hop flavor, ends moderate bitter. Good one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
At the LCRBM: Very interesting and a brew that I’m sure will improve a lot with time! Wonderful orange color with a small layer of a head. Sellery and hops nose - grapey taste with a harsh hoppy dry finish, which goes fast. Definetly one I wanna try again to see how it turns out then.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
(on bottle)TOPDOLLAR aroma, great from just one single hop, witch I never have tried before. US style with pine, elderflower, grass, hemp, wood, great sent here. mediun carbonation and an very harsh finish. The harshness turnedd bad on me, got burning and dominated the rest of half a bottle, not good. kind of unbalanced.
