3.7/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy ornage colour, 1.5 fingers of rocky white head, good amount of lace here as well. The nose up front is all concentrated citrus, orange and grapefruit, piney hops are also present, also a fairly big sweet malt note is there as well. Taste has lots of pine and citrus hops, dry hoppy bitterness throughout, a bit of malt leaves a slight sweetness, finishes with more hop flavours. Light-medium carb, medium body, quite oily. Pretty good IPA, especially if you like them with more hop bitterness than hop flavour, quite drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, sediment filled, copper-gold coloring with a tall, frothy, dense, chunky, off-white head that clings all over the glass. Aromas of tropical fruit forward, rich and sweet, with some subtle cedar notes. Very fruity. Flavors are a roast and sweet balance forward, almost like a tropical fruit jam spread on toast. Butterscotch in the backbone, with some pepper spice and grassy highlights. Very light bodied, with an almost astringent finish. The aftertaste is tartly sweet, with a more citrus based lean in the fruit characteristics. Interesting brew.

330ml bottle. Shaker glass. Enjoyed @ Freiburg (Barcelona). Brass color, chill haze appearance. Off-white froth creates a creamy crown that leaves a rocky top & a wide ring on sides while dissipated. Aromas of gentle citrics & resins. Malty upfront, subtle funky & spicy touch. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Hints of chocolate in the middle rounded by citric notes & orange juice touch provides an astringent sensation. Sweet/bitter finish. Pineapple & resins arise on the aftertaste. ABV well masked is just shown as a kind heat into the finish.
