3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden with small rapid head. Citrusy, american hop aroma. Medium body. Quite harsh straightforward bittering, some citrus, pinewood. Nice aroma, taste is not up to the promise, but a decent IPA. Probably second best beer ever from our "beloved" macro.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Citrus hoppy nose. Copper/bronze clear colour white head. Heavy bitter taste. Drinkability fair for this amount of bitterness. Finish a bit too short. Decent but lacks a fruity pine freshness which the great ipas have.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Kitty’s, Helsinki
Pours clear golden orange with a large smooth foamy head. Aroma of crispy malts, hints of citrus, lemon and grassy hops. Taste is crisp and stingy with notes of citrusy hops, lots of pine and grass and hints of malts. Finish is smooth, quite carbonated and hoppy with notes of citrus, fruits, pine and malts. Easy to drink, surprisingly tasty, although a bit dull IPA.
