3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium, off-white head over veiled red-amber beer. Grapey, aromatic hops, exotic fruit, intense. Bit of ureum and resin both. Bitter, hoppy, hopoils. Finish has really the true tangey wryness of fresh lupulin. Unripe banana, nearly astringent, resin. Feels well-carbonated, spritzy, bit sticky. Medium bodied at best. Severe - but undeniably good. Combination with salty and sweet snacks might prove disastrous - would result in extreme resiny bitterness.
