3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pros: Excellent look. Naturally carbonated. Nose has some serious hop power with the Nelson Sauvin showing its mandarin orange and tangerine character. It takes on more of a peach character on the palate. Not a very floral or piney hop to me, but quite fruity. Nice expression of the hop. Fun to taste.
Cons: While it is unquestionably well brewed, I don’t like the hop, at least as the sole element in the beer. The fruitiness of the hop became overbearing for my palate, but it’s cool to know that hops can get this fruity.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hoppy aroma of lots of exotic fruits, grapefruit, apricots, you name it. Also some malty caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet with a medium bitter finish. Not the most extreme IPA, but nicely fruity and wonderfully balanced and drinkable.

Not for the extrem sharp and extra bitter lovers who expect this in a IPA. But is a real delicacy for the rest of beer drinkers. Grape taste, medium bitter, nice body... Refreshing. So gooood!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours amber-orange colour, slightly hazy. Dense and fine head. Intense floral aroma, typical Nelson Sauvin. Full and lightly malty taste, fine carbonation, leading to a long and intensily bitter finish. Definitely one of my best IPA experiences so far.
