3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the RAF: Wonderful light hoppy aroma, very plesant. . . spicey, but smooth mouthfeel. More complex flavours than I have had from the style or would have expected from the aroma. . . very well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy aroma, not a lot of malt complexity. Spicy, soft mouthfeel. Very hoppy but amazingly smooth. About as good as this style gets--perfect finish. Trappist and I had this at RAF, he loved it, but doesn't seem to have rated it yet...I just wish there was a bit more going on in the malt, but overall impressive for the style.
