Chuck’s 85th, Seattle. Soft white cap, mostly clear pale gold. Smooth, rich sip. Lots of onion, super ripe fruit with a strong bitter finish. Strawberry, sorta, with plenty of grassy hops. Biscuit malt base. This grows incredibly bitter and features just a massive depth of hop. Reminds me of the ultra high IBU trend of years past. Plenty of flavor, and this isn’t bad, but the alpha hop explosion is taking even me back. Round, juicy body underneath that flavor at end. Nice.

Bottle from tavour. Pours a golden color: quite a lot of resin flavors with some sugary lemon taste. Nice malt base in this. Not bad.

JoTheO (190) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2017
On tap @ Queen’s Head Stockholm. Hazy yellow with a creamy head. This is fully packed with elegant citrusy and resinous hops. Great! Also, it’s a dry mouthfeel with low maltiness. This is one for the hop heads.

minihame2 (604) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2017
Hazy, pale yellow colour and a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is light hops, some grapefruit. Taste is hoppy and the hops get even more intense towards the end. Not super bitter but quite dry. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, easy on the carbonation. Overall it’s alright but the taste is pretty much only hops which I’m not too fond of.
