jookos (2162) - FINLAND - JUN 25, 2013
bottle. Orange hazy. Initially quite fruity hoppy nose - a bit of oranges, grapefruit, gooseberries, grassyness. later more toasted caramel malts. Body is dry. bitter, a bit sharp, harsh. Loads of hops, bready malts. Dry finish. Ok, but a bit too sharp for me.

Keg at Crown and Anchor. Pours a hazy orangy colour with thin white head. Aroma is slight tropical fruit with a slight cat piss edge and some mild funkiness. It's pretty good. Some pineapple, grapefruit and a dry bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
