3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle [from trade with mista] @ Kings Day Tasting 2014 shared with Dutchdrebus. Pretty hazy light orange color, full sized a bit rocky off-white head that lasts for quite some time. Aroma is malts, hops, citrus, some tropical fruits. Hops and fruitiness get more prominent after the beer warms up a bit. Taste malts, nicely hoppy and fruity. The fruit hops flow into in very nice suitable not over the top bitterness in the finish which makes the beer very enjoyable. Still I feel the beer should have a bit more alcohol, for instance 7%, to give it a bit more body. Aroma and flavorwise it’s certainly an IPA, but the body imo is just a little shy of what it should be. Nevertheless this is a very enjoyable beer!
