3/5  rDev -13.3%

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 10A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. Bottled on 21.04.14 AROMA: citrusy and passion fruit like hop notes, mixed with floral and pine aromas. faint sweet malt background. APPEARANCE: amber color with big white head and good retention. very hazy. TASTE: restrained hop flavours (some fruitiness) with high bitterness that lingers into a medium-dry finish. faint malt background giving a balance towards the hops and bitterness. PALATE: light body with high carbonation. OVERALL: a beer with a good aroma impression but with a flat hop flavours profile and body more on the light side.

Lemon jelly body thats hazy because I didn't let it settle with huge foamy multi sized pure white head

Genteel tropical fruit aroma with a hint of golden syrup

Despite a big array of hops and only five weeks old quite a downplayed flavour
not the taste tidal wave I expected
Quite a fruit cocktail taste with a warming bitter finish thats almost minty
refreshing and tasty but not the happening I expected

Beautifully balanced on the mouthfeel
both solid and easy drinking

this is good stuff, not quite great but well worth a try
