3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lovely cloudy orange golden color with a fine off white head. Nice lacing. Rich fruity and rich citrus hoppy aroma. Some alcohol. Full body. A bit unbalanced sweetness vs bitterness. Oily texture and a soft carbonation. Rich tropical fruity, a bit harse hoppy and some alcohol coming up. A bit unbalanced and some alcohol in both flavor and aroma drags it down.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very strong hoppy smell. Almost an eteric oil strong one. Pours with quite some head, brown-ish. First taste is full bodied, very well balanced and you just search for the 408 ibu bitterness, but it’s not there! It comes after you swallow and pleasantly dries your mouth. An excellent beer!
