3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle). I must start by saying: Fuck Napa Smith’s commercial deScription! Certainly this is a good beer ..! but not like their deScription. The hops are prominent, but not extreme, they have a nice mellow tone that fits well with the malt flavor. Bitterness is soft and subdued, in a very nice way. This is not an extreme hop bomb, but rather a well-balanced IPA. The taste is sweet malt with hints of caramel, overripe fruit and figs mixed with hops. The aftertaste is a bit oily bitterness. What I really like about this beer is the subdued tone in both the smell and the taste!

Härligt grumlig. Förvånansvärt fruktig. Inte så besk som förväntat. Absolut värd att dricka.

Very cloudy amber/orange beer. The taste is full of bread, exotic fruits (mango) and lots of oak (almost oak aged). The finish is full of alcohol and some bitterness. Ok beer, but I it more complex.
