This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

willisread (813) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2015
On tap at Nakameguro Taproom. Served in a stemmed tulip. Hazy golden orange color with a nice soapy white head that lasted almost throughout. Big fruity and resiny aroma present on the nose: pineapple, papaya and pine needles. Very well balanced on the palate with a a very hop-forward bitterness that shines through with a a nice sweet malty foundation to hold it up. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice long dry bitter finish. Solid IPA.

330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Quite a stinky aroma, some sweetish biscuity malts, but some rough bitterness. Simple light palate, very light for 6%, it’s a quaffable beer certainly. But it’s full, and the carbonation is pleasant. More caramelly aroma later as it warms, the stinkiness subsided and the 5 became 6. Dunno why this didn’t grab me so much, it’s a solid beer, but not a great one.

angel77 (1392) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 2, 2015
Botella de 33 cl en el momento en cimmeria el 02-01-2014. con fecha de embotellado el 08-01-2014. Color ámbar oscuro con poca espuma blanca. Aromas y sabores maltosos ligeramente cítricos y herbáceos con final no muy amargo. Cuerpo medio con 6.5 vol fácil de beber y algo pastoso. Podría mejorarse, una ipa floja con sabores de lúpulos no muy frescos, que se va apagando poco a poco según se va bebiendo.
