3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Nice honey looks and a big white head. The aroma is of herbs, some yeast, but not flowery and I was expecting it to be stronger. The taste is good, but although the exploding sensations are right at the tip (of the tongue?) they never quite deliver. Great as usual overall though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A big inhale offers much to discern. It really is a singular aroma but not the intensity of fruity American hops. Some noble-hop characteristics, musky woody note, malt, molasses, some subtle orange, melon, fresh herbs, sweet malt and alcohol. Not overbearingly fruity.
Smooth palate with soft carbonation. Taste is a little diluted unfortunately, there’s some caramel malt and some citrus, woody adnd earthy notes. A really scratchy rasping bitterness. A remarkable sturdy head, almost like a mousse/yoghurt. Endless potential, muted though, someone needs to turn the volume up.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick hazy orange with grease paper filmy and ringed head. Bristley and Bullish tropical notes. Initial taste is bitter and silky meeting in the middle with a clean pithy slight grapefruit. Carbonation is solid and expectant. Finish is a remorseful ripe orange before a creamy stick Sweet and weak hop linger. Really jaded but I guess a decent hop profile. These guys don’t fuck about.
