3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and deeply amber with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. The aroma features a medley of citrus and tropical fruits and as with all overly dry-hopped beers, there’s definitely some musky armpit here. Medium-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor is a mingling of bitter citrus and tropical fruit rinds and piths. Some melon here as well. Finishes crisp, moderately bitter and a bit coarse. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

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!

[ Bottle ][ RBWG Afterparty Day 1 ][ 22oz ][ RBWG Globe ][ Free ][ 2/6/14 ]
>> Thank you Lenin for this rake. Clear orange gold pour. Weak foam. Nose is vegetal hops- onion, shallot, garlic, maybe orange glazed shallot for a French dish. Taste is a bit boozy, sweet onion, bitter orange, peel, potpourri. Sneeze inducing hop levels. Fresh and juicy palate. I like it, but garlic and oniony hops haters gonna hate.
