3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Hazy, orange/yellow with big head. Nose : tart, pine, grapefruit peel, some little mint, pineapple. Sip : medium body with low carbonation. Sweet and spicy from the start. Fruits and tart notes are dominating. it gets more earthy and spiced. The aftertaste is strong bitter pine and citrus seeds. Earthy herbal aftertaste on my tongue. The beer is quite complex and not that easy to drink.

Bottle. Orange, slight brown. Malty bready nose, with a bit of pine. Full bodied. Malts, yeasty remnants. Darker bready, almost rye- like. Good body, balanced bittered. The flavours are a bit dull though. I liked the normal IPA a lot better.

33 cl bottle @ RIP camp, BBE 03/2014
Aroma is musty with gooseberry bush, some strawberries and hints of hay. Flavour is hoppy with some fruity tones, strawberries and hints of gooseberry bush. Palate is a bit too high on CO2. Too much strawberries and gooseberry bush here.
