tomer (3257) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 15, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, almost no head, light hazy deepish Orange color, aroma of flowers and citrus with a woody hint, light flowery aroma with a light maltiness in the back, grapefruit bitterness which is a bit too strong unbalancing the beer a bit. Still very nice.

Bottleshare at Leightons Stratoflat. Can, thanks to Paul. Lightly hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Light malts, touch of sweetness. Hops start with smooth pine followed by light hop skunk and a little citrus. Bitterness blossoms strongly in the finish, getting a metallic tang. Not bad, finish a bit awkward.

Robe ambre limpide, timide col de mousse. Armes de houblons trs amers. Pamplemousse surtout, zeste dorange. Un peu poivr, rsine de pin, gazon. En bouche, pamplemousse et pin. Un peu dorange et pche. Plus seche que fruite. Amertume tranchante ou le pamplemousse est encore mit de lavant. Lindice ibu est effectivement lev. Corps moyen, texture lgrement paisse. Se boit trs bien.
