3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A 4.8% APA. Bottle at the GJBF in Osaka 2014. A great looking copper gold with a HUGE aroma of NZ hops that literally made me say wow: orange, passion fruit, pine, resin - great. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. The taste is nowhere near as complex, pine bark, light tropical fruits, nutty woodsiness. Totally different from the nose good but kind of a mindfuck. A bit of a flowery daffodil type finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong tropical fruit aroma; watermelon, passionfruit and grapes. Some resin in the background. Pours light amber with thick white head which slowly dissipates. Very light body with the tropical fruit flavours transferring to the palate. Nice level of bitterness throughout. Really good sessionable ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Light sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with an average, slightly creamy, moderately persistent bright white head. Not the freshest aroma, but quite interesting and unusual. Quite a bit of citrus, mild white grapes notes, yeast and fruit esters influence, some berries/sweet jam presence as well. Little maltiness in the background, very subtle. Kinda watery as expected, medium level of bitterness, and slightly maltier than the aroma indicated. Good dryness, lingering floral, fruity and semi-sweet aftertaste. Average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Certainly a well balanced APA, nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle from Stockbridge Tap.
Appearance - golden with very little head.
Nose - white pepper and some overripe tropical fruit.
Taste - overripe melon and some toffee. It grows on you.
Palate - lack of carbonation but medium bodied with a tangy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - looking at other reviews was bottling a problem with this one as it was less enjoyable than their other beers?

Denne falt umiddelbart i smak selv om den luktet litt høy. Pussig for en pale ale med Nelson Sauvin. Vi tok den parallelt med Hadouken (også fra Tiny Rebel), så det ble nok litt urettferdig. Skal prøves frittstående en annen gang. Børge og jeg forlater Henrik’s godt fornøyde etter mitt første besøk på dette fine stedet med det imponerende utvalget på fat (over 50!) og begir oss ut i det strålende St.Hansværet.
