3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 ml bottle from a sampler six-pack from Liquor Depot, served in a straight-sided goblet. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with abundant, pearly white froth that breaks up from inside like a lager, leaving lace patches, Nose is of sweet citrus and herbal hops, malt dangling in behind. This beer pours with such a gigantic head, it might be Christmas before I get to taste it. It looks moderately carbonated. On the tongue, there’s sweet and juicy citrus hops, with a nice touch of sourness at the end. Just a bit thick, and with a conclusion that’s just the right length. A little one-dimensional - I had expected more malt or greater depth of hops - but it’s still a great hop-hit.

Visual: Pours golden deep orange with a long-lasting decent-sized very foamy head, very sticky thick lacing, several slow streams.
Nose: clean and direct orange-grapefruit citrus hopped malts. (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: crisp, incoming soft bitter hops
Mid-palate: fizzy-tingly, (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) liquid barley malt, bread-toffee, light chamomile
Finish: light burpy, soft grapefruit bitter hops, long lingering bitter finish.
Summary: You got the liquid sweetness of a lager balanced very nicely with the bitterness of an IPA; Not harshly hopped, just enough to create a harmonious sippable balance.

In bottle (advent calendar); this one was not for me .. lots of citrus, and very heavy on the hops ... tried a few sips and poured, I would not buy again
