3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy amber color with a large head. Lots of resinous hops on the nose, caramel malts too, I would have guessed this as a DIPA from the aroma if tasted blind, some grapefruits, pine needles and grainy notes can be found too. Resinous hops again on the flavor, caramel, sweet fruity notes and wood. Strong carbonation, bitter malty finish. Lots of flavor here but somehow it’s not that pleasant for me, maybe too resinous or something.
