4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle pours with a clear gold body that has copper hues and supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up some spicy somewhat yeasty notes followed by fruity malt sweetened citrus as well as a mineral note. The taste has a decent load of malt sweetened citrus hops creating a citrus gummy bear to sweet hard candy like sensation. Quickly the hops do get increasing bitter to midway and into the finish to the point of becoming pleasing tart grapefruit notes to a touch of lime. This achieves a tasty citrus hop bitterness with only echoes of the initial sweet citrus hop flavor into the finish. Darn nice IPA.

330ml bottle at home. Pours clear yellow with a billowy white head, which stays around to the end. Smells of dough and lemon, and a bit of butter. More cereals on the taste, and a little too sweet for me. Expecting hop balance to come, but it didn’t. OK.

IPA pours out of the bottle in a light cloudy deep golden colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and citrus. Taste of fresh hops, citrus, herbs, berries and mandarins. There is a certain lightness in the character of the beer which I really like. Very easy to drink, highly enjoyable.
