Pours clear orange with a smooth head. Aroma of hops, exotic fruits, lemon, grass, citrus, caramely malts. Taste is hoppy, juicy, grassy, a bit malty and stuffy with hints of citrus, lemon, exotic fruits. Finish is sweet, juicy and bitter with loads of different hops. Nice amount of hops, but a bit unbalanced and the hop profile is a bit messy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (thanks Teddybeer!). This one goes to the memory of my dear friend Miia (angsta). Zombier and IPA on the label, there would not be a better way to make a homage to angsta, Golden colour, small white head, and some lace. Aroma is fruits, caramel, some fruits and floral notes. Flavour is sweet fruits, floral notes and sweet malts. Brilliantly balanced, and gives me a very killing feeling of the lovely personality of angsta, no matter how hard life ever kicked you in the face, you got up, smiled, and continued. Even some days before the reaper cruelly came, you still had the nice approach to life, showing, fuck being serious. Miia, this one is for you, and I will remember all the best things. There’s something in life I learnt, never give up, get up and fight!
