3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to tulip
Lots of pine resin, grapefruit, spruce, pepper, and caramel. It’s a bit muddy orange and it has a frothy 1 cm head with good retention. Taste is orange, grapefruit, pepper, spruce, and very hoppy. Mouthfeel, I must say, is a bit thin, but hey, this is a session IPA and it’s a hell of a beer at only 4.9%.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33 cl.
Appearance: A hazy amber with a good off-white head, leaving some lacing.
Aroma: . Sweet caramel, with some Grapefruit and Mango.
Taste: Sweet caramel followed by some tropical frui and a bitter finish wih some pine. The finish however has the biterness. However halfway the bottle the backbone starts tasting this sweet low alcohol malt drinkish like.
thin to medium body, above average carbonation, (slightly lower would be better.)
Good attempt, but a bit flawed for me.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl. Hazy light amber with a white head. Aroma of fruits (citrus, melon, pineapple). Hopy taste but not too bitter. Good full taste considering its ABV. Nice beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma - very little hop presence. Medium body, heavy carbonation, some phenols, again caramel dominating with a rather simple, crude bitterness in the finish. Totally lacks hop freshness and crispiness. This comes out as a rather bland Amber Ale with a rough hopping. 010714

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. First pour is clear copper, the second a hazy brown. Lots of foam. Aroma is bright with citra hop fruitiness and pine. Taste is more muted, fruity but faded hops, and the body isn’t strong enough to carry the weight. Bit of a disappointment on the whole.

Slightly hazy reddish amber color, generous foamy off-white head, reduces slowly in flocky way, good lacing; fruity Citra hop nose, citrus, lemon, fruit syrup, herbs; hoppy bitter taste, smooth; light to medium body, creamy texture; lingering dry bitter and smooth finish.
