4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale golden haze, visible carbonation and a frumpy white head. Eggy onion, rich white berry, limes in a plastic bag/Capri Sun sweet fruitiness. Initial taste is a swell of bitterness and dried pineapple aiding drinkability. Then mulching pine and purring grapefruit. In the background there’s a melon and mango tussle, overall a real tropical meldey without being overly sweet or cheapened by the ABV. Is actually a bit thinned out, scrabbling bitterness on the finish but superb to get this performance from a single hop.

On tap @ Molen, sampled full glass. The aroma has a wonderful tropical bouquet with peach, mango, citrus. Slightly hazy, very yellow coloured with a lasting, white, medium head. The taste is moderate bitter, has tropical fruits, though while drinking more sips I got some vegetable tones. Some biscuity malts. Light-medium bodied. Drinks easy, would make a good session IPA with a a higher ABV. Even though the veggie tones were a bit off, it couldn’t really destroy the wow-effect of this great IPA.
