3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, orange-golden colour with a blond and fluffy foam. Citrus-fruity, slightly grassy and sweaty hoppy aroma with a delicately piney touch. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Dry and soft pale malty base with mainly citric and grassy hops, accompanied by herbal spice; dry and moderately bitter, also a bit slim finish with present grassy, herbal and slightly fruity hops. Likeable, but also a bit rough. 01.X.13

Bottle looks good, beer in the glass also, nice head. Starts mild, mild hoppy, modest dry. Some grasy notes, fruity with hints of lemon. Finish again milder, less fruity, almost a bit thin. Only average.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from bierpost.com
Pours hazy pale yellow with huge, creamy white head. Smell has lots of herbs, some grassy bitter hops and some slight floral notes. Starts with complex hop notes. Grassy bitterness, paired with lots of herbs and a medical undertone. Overall very grassy and bitter. Middle part has some great herbal notes, paired with floral hops and some grassy notes. Finish has lots of herbs, bitter hops and grassy notes with some fresh hay. Very untypical IPA, but I like it.
