4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my favourite beers ever. Looks great with a decorated glass, golden colour and big fluffy head that simply does not disappear. Smells of hops, at least two; one citrus and one spicy. Some yeasty sweetness as well. Maybe malts, but hops dominate. Taste is fresh with hops, fruits, citrus and some bread. Bitterness swells towards the aftertaste that ends dry and hoppy. Impressive that the hops are so distinguishable, given the high volume of alcohol (that was completely hidden by the way). What a delight.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle poured into stemmed glass. Hazy golden color with a voluminous foamy white head with decent retention and steady carbonation. Bready pale malt aroma with honey sweetness and an alcohol presence. Flavor follows suit with smooth honey notes with some peppery spiciness towards the middle and a slightly alcoholic finish. Smoother than I was expecting, but maybe a bit too smooth. I was expecting more hoppiness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Urthel Hop-it has a thick, off-white head, and hazy, very bubbly, gold-orange appearance, with minimal lacing. The aroma is of sweet, pungent, sour-dough breadiness, with an underlying bright fruit smell. Taste is of all those elements, with a noticeable grain husk and a fairly strong alcohol presence. The straight-forward bitterness shows up in the after-taste. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and Urthel Hop-it finishes semi-dry, mostly easy going, and surprisingly drinkable for such a high abv ale. Excellent! RJT

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bière dorée, limpide avec quelques particules de levure et coiffée dun large col éphémère laissant au verre une épaisse dentelle mousseuse. Des arômes de céréales, d’alcool et un houblonnage herbacé. Elle est bien amère, peu acide et légèrement sucrée. Elle est de texture crémeuse, de corps robuste, très effervescente et se termine sur une longue finale amère et légèrement aromatique.
