3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great aroma, thatís for sure. Incredibly big head, foamy and sticky that stays for quite some time. The first part of the taste is nice and flowery, then it turns a little too bitter, grapefruit style. That remains just a little too long.
Bottle from De Bierkoning.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mildly sweet, but well balanced with fragrant, herbaceous hops. Fabulous head and rich mouthfeel. Looks gorgeous too. Lovely confluence of delicate, herby/sweet flavors, great palate, and fine touch of hops. I donít usually drink single IPAís, but when I do, I appreciate a classy little number like this one.

Bottle. Amber color. Citrus, apricot and bergamot in the floral, somewhat spicy aroma. Loads of citrus (lime!) in the floral, spicy, slightly perfumed flavor. Satisfyingly balanced, tasty and aromatic brew.
