4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
DM’s. Beenleigh Qld. Slightly hazy orange amber @7C rising tiny bubbles to a tight tan head that slowly flattens, so you have to swirl as it warms to release the aromas. I detect some cold mandarin, pine, almost ripe peach, nuts and a roasty malt backup. Pleasant balance of sweet and bitter taste. Flavours of hoppy mandarin, citrus skins, pine, roasted malt, nuts with great length and stickiness that bonds it all together in what is a pretty darn good and very enjoyable IPA.
