3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich copper. Aroma is dominated by old ale style malt and alcohol. Some dried fig esters. Mouthfeel overly dominated by carbonation at first, followed by a heavy but pleasing hop bitterness. Warming malt and alcohol come through afterwards. Calls itself an ipa but it?s not. It?s a slightly over-hopped strong old ale. Would have been more interesting to firmly straddle both camps and late /dry hop to earn that badge.
