3.78/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

330ml swing-top cap bottle poured into a Hopus tulip by freshness date.

A:
The beer was decanted without bottom residual. The color is slightly dark yellow honey hue with a hazy texture and billowy massive white head. The head is very velvety and dense while also contains vast roaring small and big bubbles with exceptional retention that have a strength to stand until the last sip while same time leave a plenty of spectacular lacing patch and spot all the way down. Carbonation is refined yet high and fizzy. Overall, the showcase is just perfect and appealing.

S:
Some fruity ester from yeast, hops provide the various aromas ranging from spicy, herbal, citrusy and lemony. Also there is a maltiness with some biscuity hint, grain and sweet candy sugar.

T:
Malt and candy sugar sweetness kick off then fruity ester reveals itself in the middle along with nutty grain. Subtle hop bitterness makes a drying end and subtlety lingers as an aftertaste. Bitterness note from hops is not too much considering that it is IPA but still in range to enjoy along with its other characters like spicy, peppery and a bit citric.

M:
The body is medium, smooth with a touch of some fine carbonation and crispness, very dry finish.

D:
Good enjoyable and drinkable beer, the 8.3% abv is unsung and not too ferocious to interrupt the drink.

3.86/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

a: nice swing top bottle that pours a hazy gold/straw with a cray thick white head that looks like meringue and has amazing staying power

s: spicy, sweet, coriander, rounded citrus,

t: sweet, mild hay, rock sugar, spicey, a bit of abv, and a mild bitter hop finnish, a little grapiness

m: the creamy foam adds a nice element to the mouthfeel; medium body, slightly syrupy, it is lightly carbed which i think accentuates the mild syrupiness - it could use more carbonation imo

d: a decent beer (although it is a little overpriced), could use a little less sweetness i think and some more complex balance - good though, but an also ran for beers in the style.
