3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Gambrinus beer shop in Tartu, clear pale amber colour, medium frothy white head, good lacing. Moderately malty aroma of caramel and grain with heavy resiny and lemony hops with some spicy notes. Taste is initially slightly sweet and moderately acidic, turning into a longish heavily bitter finish with a heavily astrigent feel. Medium body, slick mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Not an overly interesting aroma, pretty uninteresting for an IPA, refreshingly heavy bitterness however and not completely unbalanced.
