4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Firm hazy golden, greasy bubbly greyish head. Minty mango, sweet and sticky lime. Initial taste is lean spicy hop sweetness, lean leady grapefruit. Overlooked carbonation, peppery and a little bit justifiably sticky. Finishes lean sweetness, cornflakey and smoothing fruit citrus. Full on for the ABV.

By far the best American Pale Ale I’ve tasted to date. The hop pop in this baby with the towel dry finish. Thin head and medium body. What else can I say this is one damn good beer and glad I got to finally try. Will be beer hunting more of this real soon. Cheers!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Mikkeller & Friends. Pours clear orange with a medium white head. Aroma has some citrus, hops and tropical fruits. Taste is of damp hops, hay and is a bit too bitter. Palate is sleek and easy. Overall I was a bit disappointed, though it is not bad.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into DFH IPA glass showing a finger of clean white foam and cloudy honey amber.
The nose shows a lot of fresh juicy tropical & citric fruit (mango, pineapple, notes grapefruit pith, orange zest). Some hints of malt sweetness here & there. Very full and abundant nose.
The palate shows high carbonation and a light body. A very slight malty sweetness appears briefly in the beginning. Then taken over by a lot of the same fruit flavors described. Very good intensity and freshness. Light bitterness on the end that’s barely noticeable because the fruit attack of the hops are so unbelievably juicy and prominent. Extremely drinkable and great on a warm summer day.
