Normally avoid a bitter, but not with this baby. Its got an almost sweet tropical pallet to it and super refreshing. Great summer beer option with an all round enjoyable profile from the start to the finish.

Heidbummer (423) - SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2016
Draft 6o North Edinburgh. Pours gold with tight white head. Loads of hops on the nose, hint of yeast, some floral notes. Really dry taste, as the name suggest bitter. Some citrus and yeast on the taste, but its more IPA than BIPA. Really really nice.

bastarda (475) - Freiburg, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2016
Aromas of herbs, flowery hops, spicy yeast; quite carbonated and bubbly, admirably dry finish, tastes of herbal/flowery hops with hints of citrus and a strong yet harmonious bitterness. Well done but not overwhelmingly so. Will have to revisit in a more perceptive state of mind.
