3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark copper, hazy body, with a big, frothy, white head, that leaves some lacing. Aroma of strawberry, flowers, tangerine, citrus, grass, biscuit. Taste is bitter, with grapefruit, pine, resin, also some red fruits, strong malt backbone, with grass, biscuit, some herbs. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes strong bitter, dry, with grapefruit peel, pine, grass, herbs. Nice, interesting! While the smell is sweet, fruity and malty, the taste has a pretty harsh hop bite, but also a strong malt backbone to balance the bitter, piney notes. Another very good IPA by this brewery!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught keg at Kings Arms E2. Aroma hints at malt sweetness, almost barleywine-like, but with a big grassy element. Flavour is intriguing - grassy & herbal hops, with a finish like gulping cooling cucumber & lime-spiked water on a hot day. Moreish.
