3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled on 12/04/2014. Murky orange with a medium white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of pine, grapefruit, malt and mineral notes. Taste is slightly/moderately bitter with grapefruit, pine, good malt backbone and light peppery finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Good balance and amazing drinkability. Not stellar, but it’s doing exactly what a Pale Ale should achieve. Really quenching.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the bierkoning. Hazy murky gold pour with lacy white head. Aroma is nice and citrusy, tons of grapefruit, light lemon, mango, pine. Taste is bitter, really potent hop juice, just the way I like it, lots of tropical fruits but a good dose of bitter pine resin as well to give some "body" to the hop flavor. Palate is med bodied with light-med carbonation. Delicious.
