3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Cardinal. Unclear dark orange body with a nice off-white head. Lovely, strong citric fruity aroma like peaches, pine and tropical fruit together with caramel malt. Flavor has malt sweetness, citric and tropical fruit, some dry fruit, pine and pleasant good bitterness. Fine body and a long and fruity bitter aftertaste. Sampled this together with a few medium quality IPA’s and had to say a clearly prefer this well balanced APA. Might be one of the better APA I have tasted.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ Haandfest 2013. This one is cloudy dark orange in the glass with a small bubbly sidesticking just off-white top. The nose has sulfur and old ripe fruits. It smells a bit farty to be honest, but if you look behind that there a re some peachy zesty yeasty fruity things. Well, that’s actually a bit of a letdown. The taste is much much better however. It feels really fresh! A bit to fresh perhaps? It’s almost somewhat astringent and grape seed mouthdrying in the mouth. A little bit of fresh citussy hops - nothing to fancy though. Ends with a lingering buttery caramel and diacetyl aftertaste. This was no big favorite. 25.05.2013
