3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Solid pour, red glow, smells amazing, taste is robust, very rich, very hoppy, aggressive hops mix well with the red, tastes like a great combo or a red ale and IPA, as it should, but the hops are pretty amazing. Well done. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.355l bottle. Clear dark amber body, off-white head. Nice caramelly aroma with pine, grass and citruses. The taste also has a caramelly base with some toast, pine and citruses. For my taste it’s too bitter. The finish is like if you were chewing on the raw hop cones. It’s a good beer, but to be honest I expected more from SN.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 fl oz. Medium to deep amber colour with a mid density, light tan head which lasted well and left scattered lacing. Aroma of pine, resin, citrus, paw paw, caramel and licorice. Medium bitterness and light to medium sweetness. Medium bodied, almost fluffy texture with a semi-dry, lingering bitter finish. A hint of alcohol warmth. Decent enough. 7.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Kuparinruskea, kirkas, ohut ja tiheä vaahtofilmi. Tuoksussa märkää nahkatakkia, maussa sitrusta ja karamellisuutta. Vähän lyhkäseksi jäi raapustelut tällä kertaa.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A reddish chestnur pour with tight cream head that leaves attractive lacing on the glass; some tropical fruit on the nose, but also some birch and spruce; the piney hops seem to dominate the taste, although there are some sweet, fruity malts hidden underneath. An assertive IPA.
