Aroma - lots of hop notes but that’s about it on the nose - lots of citrus notes. Tastes - not very complex, lots of bitterness from the hops, citrus finish. Pretty long finish, well-carbonated. Good, but nothing super exciting.

On tap several places. Slight haze, amber, good head. Citrusy, some fruit, light pine hops mixed in with decent malt aroma. I find the malt presence pretty strong as the beer warms. Aftertaste sweet and bitter, quite nice. A beer I can drink a lot of.

355ml bottle - thanks Rosenbergh, VastActive and the crowd from Hel!
Sweet fruity and perfumey aroma. Light palate, no sign of 7.2%. Simple bready malts, a bit brief. Hops in the finish are also a bit brief. A bit throwaway. (But if anything, that means they did a very good job covering the alcohol, extra point for that.)

(Bottle, 0.355 l, courtesy of rosenbergh, 20141122) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, pine, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Nice hop bite but too sweet.

Draft at the source. Slightly hazy yellor color, thick white head with decent retention and solid lacing. Nice fruity floral aroma. Taste is bitter, dank, rotted fruit. Interesting.
