4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is one of the freshest pale ales I’ve ever had. Great balance of hop and malt. Round maple notes and ash bottom. Pineapple and mango. Bursting with freshness. Possibly the pinnacle of pale ale pursuits!
Red gold pour huge foam. Aroma citrus, pine. Tastes bread. Orange resin. Watery dry side. Benzai (15611) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2017
Can @ Bierbrigadier Eindhoven, cheers Casper! Quite clear orange golden color, average sized white head. Aroma is malts, initially I get a slight grainy hint somehow, but then there’s hop and piney hops. Taste malts, piney hops, bitter hops, nice sticky piney hoppiness and nicely bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Nice! CacheManyHose (725) - HONG KONG - MAY 3, 2017
Shared with Leslie (who bought the bottle from Golden Gate Wines). Pretty hoppy for a pale ale – citrus peel, pine, lightly grassy and floral. Moderate pale malt, lightly toasted and sweetish. Floral fruity hop dominates, quite fragrant/perfumed, mild spice. Light to medium bodied. Quite nice. ciocanelu (2535) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 17, 2017
Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma has a light caramel malt sweetness with orange rind and pine resin. Taste is balanced, some light malt character and a light hop bitterness on the finish. Slightly metallic. Light body, medium carbonation. Overall it’s decent but very boring. andrepintado (3404) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - MAR 13, 2017

Can. Frothy White good mostly deminishing head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate malty and heavy hoppy aroma. Grape and pine notes. Heavy bitter flavor. Long heavy bitter finish. Oily palate. vinivini (2426) - Gomel, BELARUS - FEB 20, 2017
Canned. Opaque light amber liquid. Moderate off-white head. Average retention. Malts give melon and honey to the aroma. The tropical fruit note a little subdued. minor starch. The same thing is going on while tasting. Light citrusy bitterness takes care of balance. Halfway successful. Medium body. Good drinkability and lacking charm. Speko (414) - DENMARK - FEB 18, 2017
