4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: A huge amount of cirtus hop aroma with lots of complex fruitiness. Orange, grapefruit, lemon. The malt comes though just a little bit in the aroma. Appearance. Beautiful golden orange color, thick rocky head which lingers nicely. Flavor: Some caramel, but really this beer is about the hops. A very much easy drinking heavy hopped pale ale. The hop flavor in this beer is out of this world, they probably throw a huge amount in late in the process to get such a wonderful flavor out of it. Palate: Medium body, no off flavors, perfect amount of carbonation. Lower bitterness. Overall: If you love hops, but don’t love IPAs and the bitterness, this beer is worth a try. The late hopping they do gives it a huge hop flavor with less bitterness and allows you to get a lot of the malt out of it. Overall I think this the perfect american pale ale session beer if you are a hop head.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle into shaker. Slightly hazy bronze beer with thin white sudsy head. A few tiny bubbles ascend. A slight zinginess, lingering finish. A bit fruity, a touch of malt, some subtle hop touchs. This is a beer that develops with every swallow. As it warms more flavours appear. But it’s so easy drinking I’ve finished it! Should’ve bought two........

Versa di colore dorato scuro con schiuma lieve e bianca non molto durevole. Aroma floreale o erbaceo molto "primaverile" se vogliamo. In bocca è altrettanto floreale ben bilanciata con l’amaro del luppolo.Secca e liscia il giusto. Gradevole e soddisfacente.
