COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the Shipping Forecast A West Coast IPA with big bitterness and hop aroma. Remarkably easy drinking for its strength, this beer contains more hops than is strictly sensible! Brewed with Maris Otter and Citra, Chinook and Simcoe hops.

On tap at La Més Petita, Barcelona. Quite clear amber. Potent piney hop nose, very bitter in the mouth. Makes a statement.

x ml sample, thanks veliemboys. Pours a hazy orange copper colour with a small head. Aroma of fresh citrusy hops, something earthy and biscuit. Flavour is rather strong on bitterness, wet earth, mild caramel notes and harsh graininess. Medium bodied, a bit harsh mouthfeel and low-ish carbonation. Nice bitterness. Reminds me of The Kernel’s IPAs.

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2014
33 cl bottle @ olio. Batch #0001, BBE 14.06.2014
Aroma has fruity hops, some biscuits, caramel and peaches. Flavour is fruity and hoppy with aggressive hops, peaches and some mineral tones. Finishes with long, long lingering hops. Feels a bit like some beers with low ABV and high IBU.

330ml bottle from Rosses i Torrades, Barcelona

Batch 0001, BBE 14 Jun 2014 - Pours dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of fresh zesty hops, citrus, grapefruit, exotic fruits and grass. Taste is smooth, wet hoppy and malty with some caramel, citrus and grass. Finish is malty, lingering bitter and hoppy with some exotic fruits, stuffy caramely maltiness and biscuity notes. Quite good.

GBZ59 (1116) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAR 15, 2014
Botella de 330ml - procedente de L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Copa de Vino. Color ámbar rojizo y apariencia nublada. La espuma blanca crea una corona tupida que persiste con fina capa y deja algunos copos en las paredes. Aromas de maltas cristal y moderadamente tostadas, notas de madera verde, resinas subyacentes y pomelo con trazos muy sutiles de queso. Malteado dulce y galletas al primero sorbo. Cuerpo ligero/medio y carbonatación moderada. Textura densa levemente aguada. En el intermedio afloran sabores resinosos y contundentes con un amargor que barre las notas afrutadas y dulces. Final prolongado con un retrogusto de pimienta y hierbas. Una elaboración bien equilibrada, voluptuosa y refrescante. Una buena opción para apagar la sed!! 330ml bottle –brought from L´Espumossa (Barcelona)- Wine glass. Reddish amber color & cloudy appearance. White froth creates a close, thin & lasting crown. Some spots are left. Crystal & mild toasted malt aromas, hints of green wood, underlying resins & grapefruit with very subtle cheese hues. Sweet toasted maltiness & biscuit at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dense to slightly watery texture. Resinous & sharp flavors in the middle where fruity & sweet notes are overwhelmed by bitterness. Long finish. Peppery & herbal aftertaste. Well balanced, voluptuous & refreshing brewing. A thirst quenching one!!
