Poured to an Ora et Labora taster. Trying to remind myself how this beer was from 5 days ago.

Appearance-wise, body is yellow to a faint orange, opaque with some white head that has medium to low retention. The aroma is very resinous, way more than expected but OK. Taste is a bit overpowered for too resinous/grassy hops. There's really a lack of balance here. Still, for a afternoon of extreme heat, it's a very drinkable piece of beer. The body is very smooth, alcohol is totally unfelt and this mouthfeel is probably the best thing there is on this can. Overall, I'd just wind down the power on the resinous profile. If we got to that, this could easily be one of To Øl's best IPAs.

Can. From degustasur. In Teku glass. Herbal and dry, with great nose but taste below it,more flat. High initial carb, later a bit watery. Fine but not mindblowing

Pours hazy shiny orange, small modest off-white head, quick to some lace and some froth.
Smell of sweet "wet" fruity hop, with tropical fruit and green onion notes from the Simcoe and Mosaic, especially pineapple and mango, with some faint floral notes and citrus peel too. Bit of malt sweetness.
Tropical fruit in the front, with some mango pulp, some fresh pineapple, grapefruit, some kumquat, with some grassy bitter hops early on, some funky hints of green hay even. Light peach sweetness, caramel and crackery pale malts. Resiny finish, a bit spicy, a bit floral, with really bitter hops. Dry.
Aftertaste has herbal bitter hop, some fresh grain, but no fruitiness. Medium body, medium fizz. Hops seem to accumulate, this beer getting really dry and bitter after a few sips.
The lack of alcohol strength is felt, the malt backbone being a bit too "skinny" and frail for the amount of hops in this session IPA. So less flavors, more bitterness. Still, pretty enjoyable.
