Lots of grapefruit in aroma and also in flavor. Malts, some dusty earthy notes, fruity hops. Bit stuffy. Quite refreshing.

Strong lychee aroma! No head. Aftertaste is powerful and reminds me of tree bark used for bottling wine. Very different from conventional beers.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Fresh aroma has typical IPA notes, some grass, some sunflower. There’s not much foam, but the color is nice cloudy light orange. Palate is a bit dry, but well balanced and fluent. Taste has typical IPA bitterness and some tobacco smoke like "smokiness" that bites your throat, but it’s cut nicely by some very sweet caramel body, so that the overall taste becomes layered and round. Some grapefruit, the caramel and even chocolate like sweet body. Some berry flavours spread on the sides. This is a superb "iteration" on the IPA style and one of the best IPAs I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, pale yellow colour and a small white head. Aroma is really sweet and fruity, not much else. Taste is nice, hoppy bitterness with just enough grapefruit. Medium body, soft carbonation and very smooth mouthfeel. It’s a nice, light and fruity ipa.
