4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Dutch RB meeting. Pours a beautiful clear deep orange to copper color with a creamy thick off-white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of amarillo hops, floral and fruity. The flavor is slightly watery, mildly hopped and bitter with some sweet fruits in the end. Well balanced and very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.5%. Cloudy dark brown colour, big to moderate beige head. Lovely aroma of American hops, fruity, piney and resinous notes. The flavour is extremely hoppy from start to finish, but has also a substantial malty sweetness. A bit too much of both sweetness and hops, IMHO. Still, clearly a craft brew well worth samling.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bevuta alla pompa @ Pazzeria.
Allo ha sicuramente migliorato questa birra estrema portandole un equilibrio che precedentemente non aveva.
I profumi che vanno a bilanciare il gusto amaro sono eccelsi.
Comunque rimane sempre ampiamente meglio alla spina che in bottiglia.
