3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
04.12.2013, 0,75l bottle (listed as 6,5%) @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh fruity, light malts, hops, lawn, grapefruit, leafs, hints of orange, citrus peel and pine needles. Taste is slightly harsh grainy, light malts, old hops, wet grain, wet leafs, citrus peel, bark, pine needles. Medium to longlasting bitterness. Nice enough, better than expected, still not a too fresh bottle I guess.

Bottle. Pours an orange-brown body, with a large white head that sits on top, until I finish my glass. Nice bunch of hops on the aroma. Medium to heavy bitter taste, notes of hops, that are balanced by the malt. Nice smooth texture, but a bit watery, too. Medium to heavy bitter aftertaste. Nice smooth carbonation, thin to medium body. A very nice IPA.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours hazy dark golden with a huge creamy white head. Aroma is light sweet grain, honey and piney hops. Taste is light bitter, pine and crisp citrus, good malty bready backbone, overall a very good beer from Santorini.

Amber with one finger white head. Sweet aroma with hints of hops. A bit too sweet for me and the hops are mild.

Interesting to get a craft beer from Greece care of teorn88 at the Steasy66 tasting in Craft Islington. Clear pale rusty amber, with a white bubbly head. Nose is orange blossom, touch of tangerine, orange peel, grapefruit rind, little bit vegetal. Taste is bitter grapefruit and orange citrous with some nice pine to make it quite bitter.

Bottle from Donkey brewery. This is branded as 6.5%. Pours hazy amber with a small beige head. Great lacing. Nose shows heavily stewed fruits, light toffee, mango, orange, earthiness and grass. Not overly bitter. Taste is heavy, resinous caramel and tropical fruits with earthy grass driven tones underneath it all. Nice stuff

Beautiful stewed aroma with leafy, catty tones; grapefruit, dried flowers, grenadine, lavender.
