3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 So how does this lager type stack up to it’s rival IPA and APA buddies...
Its colour stays yellow, some haze, its smell suggest there’s many hops and indeed there are. Pineapple, nectarine..? but the taste resembles the American Dream, this still has that lager type base as kind of light and a tad watery. Hops just make this bitter, add some honey or caramel and perhaps we’re there.
This is rather good, but a bit "lager".
Rerate:03.08.13, deserves a better score, "lager gone good" type of beer.

Bottle: Appearance: golden orange, huge white head. Aroma: cat piss! Hoppy as hell, so much citrus. Smells wonderful. Flavour: cat piss again, orange peel oil, so bitter, kind of a copper note to it, tastes boozy but isn’t, huge hoppy mouthfeel. Long pine and citrus finish. Lovely.
