Tulip at Northdown, quick review from notes.

Bright saturated gold, perfect clarity, compact layer of white foam on the surface. Good retention, some lacing visible.

Aromas of light tropical fruit and earthy bitterness. Dried papaya, cantaloupe, coriander.

Taste is lightly malty with a cantaloupe note up front, followed by a building earthy bitterness that lingers long into the aftertaste. Medium bodied with a balanced malty presence. Overall it's worth a try, though not sure i'll seek it out based on personal preference.

12/14: bottles just came out, picked up a single. Not really as tropical as before, more earthy Belgian yeast, and grapefruit peel bitterness, sort of clovey. (693 characters)
