Feel like I’m eating hop leaves - thick and heavy. Drinks well though, bitterness is fair.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle of 10 Year Anniversary Ale (11% this year) into a Corsendonk badged tulip (twice) on 3rd June 2016 while on holiday in California. Golden amber in colour with a little beige head of deep foam. The breweries description is spot on, I found this hoppy, piney and with a warming alcoholic depth from the first sniff and sip. I had the whole bottle with a cheese platter and salted biscuits, sharing neither the beer or cheese plate with anyone or thing (Frankie the dog looked on hopefully). Impressed.

Candied apple and lots of guava and citrus, mango. Golden amber pour with good head and lacing. Very bitter. And very nice all around. A little more complex than the hop concepts I just had. Tap at Sovereign Savor event.

Draft at the Lost Abbey 10th Anniverary Party. Golden pour with decent head. Lots and lots of hops and sweet citrus aromas. Flavors if more hoppy deliciousness. Pretty good for a style that has been becoming less and less of a favorite.
