3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a medium-sized white head with some lacing – simply beautiful. The aroma features citrus fruitiness, pine, resin and some grass; very hoppy. Taste is dry, crisp and heavily bitter, especially in the finish which is no wonder given the 95 IBUs. Flavours include initially pine, later grapefruit and orange. The palate is medium-bodied, average in carbonation. As intense as promised by the label.
