bottle, at klub malych pivovaru. bright orange with a thin head; aroma of cookie dough and pine; not overly bitter for a double ipa but the better for it, revealing some bready malt, pine, grapefruit and a really clean but not dull character

Bottle split at JF’s, cheers James, 19/07/13. Labelled as ’AV - Imperial IPA’.
Very lightly hazed golden amber with a decent sized off white head that retains well.
Nose is caramel malt forward, hops, bitter orange, light pine.
Taste comprises caramel malt, light tropical fruit medley, bitter orange, hint of bitter grapefruit, light hop notes.
Full end of medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with hop bitterness.
Ok DIPA - nothing too exciting though.
