3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330mL bottle, pours a clear orange with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of orange fruits, resinous hops and dry caramel malts. Flavour is very similar, with fruity orangey hops, resin and juicy caramel malt. Very well-balanced, with perhaps too fruity a palate. Good stuff.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
IPA que no parece una IPA salvo por el color de las maltas. Bebida en barril. Sin amargor. Sin aroma. Puede pasar por una Hefe Weizen normalita, pero no argumenta su estilo.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours light orange colour with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and grass plus unfortunately some unpleasant sulphur notes. Taste of citrus, fruits and low malt note. Bitter aftertaste. Apart from unpleasant notes in the aroma it is a quite nice IPA.
