In the bottle hoppy, waxy, sort of dried husky nose leady to a very light orangy colour with some haze. Half inch fairly concentrated white head with a light tornado heading. The nose becomes more succulent and builds over time.
Medium bodied with a faint fruit backbone but restrained and supports and gives way to an immediate lengthy bitterness. Some intensity and not at all extreme but good complexity especially at the end. Nice bitter finale but not at all piny. Balanced and potent.
No photo finish here. This one leads the pack.
