TASTE: restrained hop flavours (some fruitiness) with high bitterness that lingers into a medium-dry finish. faint malt background giving a balance towards the hops and bitterness.

Bottle at home from Bottledog. Aroma is subdues, lemon citrus hop, some neopoletean ice cream, strawberry and hop leaf. Golden colour, with a light haze and lasting white head with some big bubbles. Flavour is fairly straightforward, clean direct base malt, some biscuit. Hops are lightly citrus, orange peel and lighlty spiced. Very well balanced and drinkable. Firm clean bitterness rounds it out, some earthy hay lingers. Medium palate, touch of sweetness and moderate carbonation. Solid.
