In short: A dry-hop orgy over a creamy toasted nutty malt backbone. Fun tasty beer
How: Cask at Cheval Blanc, special cask for their 25th anniversary cask event. This version was described as 7% dry hop Amarillo
The look: Dark brown body topped by a very small beige heard
In long: Nose is dominated by hops essential oils, this is a dry-hop bomb, a bouquet of flowery juice with a citrus twist. In mouth the regular Armada shows up a bit (creamy nutty maltiness and all..) but mostly it is the dry hop that overwhelms the beer. Description at Cheval Blanc said it is a blend of Armada and Grande Armada Réserve but I suspect regular Armada makes most of the blend. Carbonation was exactly what I expect from a cask. Anyway I liked this special version of this beer, not as much as the regular Armada, but this over-the-top dry hopping over a creamy nuttiness made for a unique experience. And after years of going to my local pubs I’ve finally realized that discussing politics with a beer in my hand is not as satisfying as discussing politics with other people.
