3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A golden colored ale with a white frothy head. An aroma of apricot/orange marmalade, candid orange peel, pine forest and something that reminds me of sweat. The taste is dominated by a dry but yet sweet taste of golden grapefruit and yellow stone fruit. It has long hoppy finish of green nature that is well balanced with the sublime malty character that i find in the beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
High frothy head. Fresh smell. Extremely dry flavor, very much hops, a lot more than an IPA should have, this is more like a British ale but it is balanced wiith an escaping touch of tropical fruit. Quite enjoyable. Goes well with heavy food or on its own.
