De perfil herbal con algo de cítricos y resina. Bastante suave y equilibrada, con final ligeramente amargo. NO la catalogaría como Imperial IPA. De lo mejor de esta cervecera. Muy buena. BB 25/05/2018.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma has lots of citrus fruits, very lemony and orangey, with a solid bready backbone. Taste follows the nose, lemon, lime, orange, tangerine and biscuit are very predominant. Moderate bitter ending to it.

From elcervecero. At dinner, after futsal match. With tuna with biscotte. Lemony, herbal and refreshing, with some reminiscences to a belgian strong pale ale. Bbf nov 2017

Chopp. Golden colour, medium white head. Aroma is sweet with "old" hops, bit earthy. Flavour is sweet, toastish malty with eartthy bit old like hoppiness.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Butelka 330ml. Lekko metnawe o jasno zlotym kolorze. Piana biala,obfita,opada dosc szybko. Aromat cytrusow i slodkich owocow tropikalnych,w tle lekka sosna. W smaku slodkie mango ananas i marakuja zbalansowane przez grejpfruta i pomarancze. Wszystko to okraszone sosnowym akcentem. Alkohol dobrze ukryty...nic tylko pic i pic.

330 ml bottle bought at HK Brewcraft in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Looks: Clear light goldenThree-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which lasts for 1 minute; Very good sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant Ale malt, with strong white grapes, gooseberry, melon, yellow fruits, cream soda, strong floral, fructose, pepper, spices, dry biscuits, citrus and grass.

Taste: Medium sweet strong Ale malt, with tartness, strong grapefruit, citrus, white grapes, floral, light sugar, spices, resins, biscuits, strong lemon, very strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Medium body. Dry, lean and quite oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Good Ale maltyness in a wheat-slimmed background. Fairly tart. Strong grapefruit bitter hops dominate with NS’ vineyness abound. Flowery with fair sweetness. Spicy and quite oozy. Dry bready with strong lemon to round. Very good!

Hoppiness: White grapes, gooseberry, melon, yellow fruits, cream soda, strong floral, pepper, spices, citrus and grass in nose. Grapefruit, citrus, white grapes, floral, spices, resins, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is very strong for a lasting, very high astringent bitter-sweet fair malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Crisp, citrusy and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one achieves the strong bitterness yet quite pleasant. Good NS viney and creamy aroma and citrus taste, and the resin ooze is just right. Yet it was little too wheat thinned to be truly impressive. Still a highly enjoyable Summer IPA!

Bottle 330 ml from Waitrose. Rich aromas of tropical fruit and grass. Small white head, hazy golden yellow body. Taste is intense and rich bitter with fruity notes. I sense notes of grapefruit and citrus.
