Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Slightly unclear orange color, medium sized white to off-white head. Smell malts, hops, lightly pine and fruits. Taste malts, hops, bitter, lightly fruity. Don’t get the grapefruit, citrus and tropical fruits some others describe unfortunately. Nice beer, but I had hoped it would be better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle. This is a heavy cloudy really orange, almost glowing beer with a really good looking, big and lasting just off-white head. Looks really good in the glass this, and the aroma is pretty darn nice as well. Lots of fresh citrus, it’s what I call tropical with both pineapple and mango. Something kinda flourish also, but it’s a solid fresh hoppy aroma on this. It has a slick oily mouthfeel with a carbonation level right below average. The flavor was not as fresh as the aroma. More of that dry flour/alcohol, zest, some yeast, a good dash of piney hops and a grassy aftertaste. Somehow it does feel a bit over the top, but have to admit that it was good with a solid hoppy IPA now, as it’s been a while. 23.03.2013
