3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good for the style but lacks some unique character. With this becoming such a popular category it needed something else. More malt and floral hops aroma with sweetness. Amber/copper color with a small head. Medium carbonation and smooth feel. Some sweet and tart essences. Well balanced with a good bitterness that wasn’t too sharp. Relatively dry finish. Pleasant.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with an off-white foamy head, decent retention and lots of soapy lace. Lots of sediments floating all-over as well. Aromas of fresh hop at first, but seems to be taken over by the alcohol, caramel warmth with some notes of fruits (orange, peach). Good, almost full body, with some nice mild dryness in the finish, but a better wetness all-the-way, making this one well-balanced. Easy to drink, with the hop in the taste, but not overdone. Grapefruit, malt and hints of toffee. Nice citrus zest in the aftertaste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright, hazy, tangerine pour, big rocky brilliant white head. Lots of bubble action in the glass. Looks superb. Huge nose - citrus, orange zest, orange peel, catpiss, candied fruits, sherbet sourness and some brioche from the malt character. Awesome. Intense flavour, a blast of taste up front sharp hops and buckets of the citrus and orange stuff from the aroma, middle is all sweet tongue smacking malt, followed by a huge hop hit in the finish. Lush amd smooth mouthfeel, low-low carbonation soft enough to underpin the flavours but no more. A savage beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright amber color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of citrus and resinous hops with pretty dominant with some dry caramel malt notes also perceptible. Taste is a mix between some citrus hops with nice floral touch and some resinous and slightly earthy hops with some dry caramel malt wand light residuals sugar notes. Body is slightly fuller then average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed and a beer I would seek again.
