My goodness! Expectations are obviously rocket sky as the hype for this thing is pretty hot nowadays… I have myself been looking forward to try this one (shout out to Tomas Steinsland for the trade!) And as they say judging the book by its cover, makes me really really excited.
Murky but the distinct yellow color and with a nice white head when pouring, this is highly promising…
The nose is kinda tropical orientated with orange peel, peaches, mango/fruits of summer and lots of delicious citra hops. So how could one hold it any longer?
Very very smooth intro, sliding into hoppy sharp edge. The carbonization provides great freshness. The stingy bitterness sets in in less than two seconds, and slowly fades into a fruitpunch, still with a sharp edge to it. Not the best m, but amongst the top of the line still. Long lasting aftertaste into eternity.
A great IPA!
