4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 33cl bottle courtesy of Alex. It pours deep orange / burnt sugar in colour with a one finger soapy white head. Foam vanishing rather quickly. Aroma is intensely hoppy, coming through as very fruity. Smells like apricot and feet from the bottle and it’s already magnificent. In the glass it opens to more citrusy notes with grapefruit and apricot. Some sugary sweetness in the nose as well. Taste is bitter on a solid malty backbone. Ends very dry and very bitter. So bitter it’s almost astringent. Taste is very fruity, as in the nose, but more balanced towards a biscuit toffee like malt base. You can feel this is bold. Nice body, almost silky texture. Soft carbonation. Overall, definitely a hop bomb. Outstanding in the aroma, balanced in the taste. You need to be used to serious hoppiness to stand the almost abrasive aftertaste. If you do, this can be heaven.

Thanks Alex for the bottle. The aroma has citrus and has herbal, somewhat harsh tones. Columbus hops there? Bit hazy, golden-orange coloured beer with a good head. The taste is quite bitter, bit harsh, citric, herbal, not too malty. Refreshing, pleasant carbonation. Nice one. Got this one is one session with th F.R.E.S.H, which has some more maltiness and sweetness. I think this one is better. Nintendo-like 8-bit artwork is cool.

Bottle. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Citrus and perfumey fruit in the nose. Very clear straw color. Mild citrus hop initial; morphs into a light fruity mid palate, and then balances, with a little metallic note; finishes with some harsh bitterness on the edges of the tongue. Thin, or actually somewhat watery. Nice enough.
