COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
City of the Sun is a big, fruity, pungent, sticky, delicious IPA. Mosaic & Motueka give it a very fruity hop character, with Simcoe providing enough of a piney backbone to prevent it from going off the deep end. The complex but unobtrusive malt character gives it a medium body and a platform for the saturated hop flavor.

cervmagpt (779) - PORTUGAL - MAR 23, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 21A). Can 47 cl - Batch 1722522 (BBF unknown - canned on 11/16/16). AROMA: moderate passionfruit hop aroma, mixed with pine and some resin. slightly sweet malt background with an almost neutral character. APPEARANCE: deep gold color and clear. medium white to off-white head with good retention. TASTE: similar to the aroma, with a more pronunced pine flavor than passionfruit. medium-low slightly sweet and almost neutral malt background with a very faint toffee note. medium to medium-high bitterness with a semi-dry to dry and bitter finish. PALATE: medium body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a nice american IPA with good hop notes (it would taste even better, fresher).

Burk frn SB. Tack Daniel! Gyllengul disig vtska med hgt smutsvita skum. Frisk doft med mango, kda, ananas, passionsfrukt och nektar. Rejl kropp, bra balans, rena smaker, t det stare hllet vilket lyfter fuktigheten men med en tydlig citruszestig beska som matchar stman vl. Snygg modern vstkust-IPA. Gott
