3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good white head with lacerings, over hazy orange beer. Flowery, dry hosp. Bit cakey, raisins, blossoms. Very bitter, hoppy flavour. Faint exotic fruit. Finish goes towoards quiinine-like bitterness, mixed with rosewater. Spritzy, very dry; dry-out effect as from tannins. Bit raw, crude in character. I’ve had better IPA’s for sure, and the black version is more accomplished.

Flavor is dry piney and citrus hops, citrus juice and slight malt. Long, slightly astringent hop finish that is still enjoyable because of the somewhat complex flavors of the hops. Medium bodied with a hint of creaminess. I
