3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Craig’s place. It pours hazy golden – amber with a small white head. The nose is toasty, bitter- sweet, orange peel, tangerine, bergamot and piney resins. The taste is crisp, pretty bitter, earthy, waxy orange peel, tangerine, bergamot, touch of grapefruit, resin and some sweet toffee undertones. Medium body and fine carbonation. Feels a bit sweet in places, but overall its decent enough.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy copper colour with a scant head and the promised hop cone. Big hop aroma with a sweet malt background. Similar for the taste, a bit sweet and sticky, I suspect this bottle may be past its best as is quite flat.

(Bottle, 0.355 l - BB 31/10/2016 - importers sticker, at Kaisla, 20160108) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had tangerine, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were tangerines, fruitiness, resin, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A bit unpleasant hoppy pale ale. Hoppiness lacked balance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Poured an orange amber color with a solid frothy head like water over a Wisconsin River dam. Smells like hops,hops, & hops. Citrusy grapefruit/lime. Has a medium/full mouth feel and I think I detect an ever so slight malt presense at the finish.The hop cone in bottle is kinda cool and I like this beer
