3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy dark orange colour with a medium, creamy, light beige head. Fruity aroma of pine, fruity hops, tropical fruits and some citrus. More fruit in the flavour with grapefruit, pine and has a dry and grassy ending. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A really well balanced and fruity IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(33 cl bottle from Greekbeershop.gr; Bbd: October 30th 2014; L41671 10:49) Pours a slightly hazy amber with medium white head. Decent retention. Aroma is withered citrus hops. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium body and a dry and only very lightly bitter finish. Flavour is hoppy and relatively dry with more citrus notes. Clean expression, pleasant to drink and well composed. I only wish I had it more fresh but otherwise the usual high quality from Septem.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5%
Deep golden orange colour on the body, only a tiny bit of hazyness, with a good sized off-white soapy head, with good retention, leaving light lacing aroun the glass.
Lots of citrus on the aroma, some fresh peach flesh, tropical fruits, very refreshing.
Taste also of fresh peaches, tropical fruits, citrus, light alcohol for a moment, oranges, subtle bitterness.
Medium thin body with good carbonation, slight oily palate.
Great beer, I hope that this one stays in production and I look forward to more on this Hobby Series.
