3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear coopper, smallish head. Aroma is ... surprisingly weak, actually. Wood, grapefruit, resin and caramel blended in a somewhat non-descript way. Not bad. Just... weaker than expected. Taste is.... against, a bit weak as well : really low on citrus, and a little stronger on the resin aspects of the hops, but again, malts seems at the front, which is strange at best considering what it is. Traces of veggies and dead leaves. The finale is where this beer really shines : gradual, thick and quite long bitterness, perfectly done. Well balanced. All in all : Balanced beer that got something really well (finale) and other things... well, without going wrong, aren’t exactly top notch. Surprisingly easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy deep copper with a two finger cream coloured head that fades slowly. Nose is light roasted malts with pine and some fruit. Light toffee fronting a quite bitter middle and finish with no dominant contributing factor but made up of pine, grapefruit, grass and some flowery hops that ends up being quite muddled. Medium oily mouth with average carbonation and a dry finish. Odd.

6.5% Interdite 90 minutes on tap at the brewery. It is a lovely copper gold, the aroma is funky toe jam, fruity and piney. The taste has a solid malt backbone more toe jam, clean sharp bitter pine boughs and some light fruitiness. Hopped every 1 minute for 90 minutes, I was expecting more after I heard this was inspired by the Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. Just OK.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Hazy orange color, full sized creamy off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is quite sweetish, lightly alcoholic and it reminds me more of a mix between a barley wine and a quadrupel. Weird. Taste is malts, lightly floral, again sweetish flavours but very bitter in the aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. A bit disappointing to be honest.

Deep amber pour with a thick tan head. The nose is a bit malty with some toasted malt and a bit of soft hoppiness and some nice fruitiness. It’s got a moderate bitterness and is more earthy and slightly dank iced tea hoppiness. Decent - but the pale ale is superior.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle. Pours a deep caramel, almost like an Apple cider, with a frothy, one finger, off white head that laces well. Aroma has nice notes of traditional hops blended with some fruity esters, pine, and a hint of citrus. Taste is bitter but balanced. Hints of pine, resin, caramel, more traditional hops, and a drawn out finish. Medium body and carbonation. Slight resin texture in the mouth but still very drinkable. Slightly dry finish. Overall a nice beer. Would have liked a bit more fruity hops but still done well.

Botella de 33 cl en cimmeria en el momento en 06-06_2014. color marrón claro turbio con espuma blanco persistente. Bien de carbónico sacando espuma en todo momento. Cuerpo medio con 6.5 vol con paso algo denso y pastoso. Sabores y aromas no muy intensos con toques maltosos y lúpulos ligeramente resinosos y "maduros " que dejan un amargo no muy persistente. Buena en general.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark copper, with a fairly thin off-white head. Medium lacing left behind as drunk.
Aromas of red fruit peels and a tinge of molasses.
Tastes of caramel, with a definite tea punch. A nice happiness on the swallow.
Overall, this is an IPA IN WHAT I LIKE TO CALL THE "tea category". This one is good, but not overly memorable when I think back on all of the IPAs I have imbibed.

341ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 17-04-201.
In short: a resinous ale.
Pours hazy amber with flocks of sediment, frothy off white head. Good head retention, some lacing. Pine, resins, fruity aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste follows the nose, earthy, resinous, good hop punch, moderate bitterness. Enjoyable.
