3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Bottle from Kaohsiung HSR station. Aroma is citrus and caramel, but herbal. Taste is hoppy but this series of single hops from Mikkeller (vs other series from same brewery) doesn't seem to let hop characteristics through as much. Tastes sharp, bitter, juicy and slightly sweet. Crisp dry bitter finish. Not bad but a bit disappointing vs previous single hops and other Amarillo-dominant IPAs.
