3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a red-brown colour with a thick and full beige head. Aromas of citrusy and pine hops, and caramel malts. Taste is of bitter hops, with a sweet caramel to round it out. Medium length dry finish. Subdued for a quasi-double IPA, but still very nice.

330ml Can from Drinks of the World, Basel (5.30 CHF):
This one was a beer I was looking forward to but instantly became unsure of as I poured the can & it looked a lot darker than I’d pictured in my head given I was expecting a standard American IPA. Thankfully the beer was one that grew on me, especially by the time I got to the taste with the darker malts & roasted flavours perfectly balanced against some pine & citrus hops with a little sweetness & sugar thrown in for good measure. It was definitely an unusual take on the style but it went down a treat & was easily on of the better beers I tried on my trip to Switzerland; great stuff & one well worth looking out for.
