Tap @ Ravintola Panimo, Pori 14/03/13. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a huge, yellowish-brown head. Aroma is very fruity. Exotic fruits abound. Grapefruit is strongest, but there’s also pineapple and papaya as well as guava. No passion fruit. Taste is mango, papaya, starfruit, slight passion fruit. No malt flavors of any kind. The hop is the star here. Palate is light, but not watery, not much carbonation either. Good, even great for this ABV. 8-3-8-3-16

Aroma is hoppy and somewhat straightforward with gooseberry bush and some exotic fruits. Flavour has gooseberry bush, exotic fruits and some plastic-like element like the Amarillo had. Very good for this ABV, no wonder that this won the best beer title at HBF ’11. I like the Citra even more though.
(Bottled, rated 2011-04-01) Hazy reddish brown with a largeish, lasting and lacy head. Mild aroma with some citrus and grass, but also ashy stuffiness. Stingy-woody hops in the flavor, almost cat-peeish, but somewhat drinkable. Very little fruitiness - only some sourish grapefruit. Light but not watery body with stinging bitterness and fizzy CO2. Lots of bitterness and not as much ashiness than in the Amarillo, but still no balance whatsoever. Feels bad to pour half of the expensive bottle down the drain, but it just won’t go down my throat.
