mario_giri (162) - SWITZERLAND - APR 17, 2015
Ich rieche fruchtige und blumige Hopfen, etwas Zitrone und Mandarinen vielleicht auch. Ein kurzer fester Schaum ein schönes klares helles Orange. Zu Beginn sehr bitter wird dann von einer malzigen Fruchtigkeit aufgefangen. Mittelvoll, angenhem kabonisiert, rutscht gut. Zum Schluss wird es ein wenig trocken bleibt aber immer angenehm bitter. Ein sehr gutes Bier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Hazy orange,cooper with medium, semi-densed white head. Medium lasting. Good lacin. Nice aroma of tropical fruits (mango), citrus, some resin aromas. You can also nice some sweet malty profile. Taste is medium bitter (grapefruit like), from the middle balanced with sweet malts. Finish is bitter, dry and quite long. Medium body, silky, medium carbonation. In overall good and drinkable IPA. You won’t find here any extraordinary, but solid and balanced beer.
