Slightly piney and citrusy hoppy aroma, a touch of grapefruit, cautious hints of honey. candied fruit, toffee. Taste is moderately sweet, notes of toffee, a bitter (hoppy) touch. Interesting honey-to-toffee-transformation, in the process slightly bothersome bitter note.

Many thanks to andrew_drinks for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Wonderful hoppy aroma. Starts fine hoppy, modest sweet, more and more spicy notes. Light dry-woody background. Well balanced dry hoppy finish. A good one!

_angst_ (3048) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2014
Bottle shared at the Colin and the Vinings tasting. Pours hazy reddish orange with a small fraothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is slightly malty and tiny fruity with dark bread, biscuits, freshly cut grass, honey, pine needles, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, lemon hard candy and peaches. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter and slightly fruity with biscuits, grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, pine needles, red apples, lemon zest, orange zest, passionfruit, peaches and soil. Mouthfeel is soft, round and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and tiny fruity with toasted cereal, biscuits, grapefruit rinds, unripe tropical fruits, apple skins, grass, pine and soil. Simple yet quite good...
