3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Deep golden, a bit unclear, stable and lacy off-white foamy layer; sweet-bitter bready-fruity nose; moderate sweet and bitter flavour, medium bodied and pretty soft; lingering sweet fruity and malty finish with a slightly lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Well crafted, but IMHO too sweet…

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little over the consume-by date, but what the heck.
At just on cool an into a snifter. Pastel orange in colour with good clarity. Head diminishes to a thin white lather. Subtle mango, lemon myrtle, lemongrass and eucalypt in the aroma with a pronounced floral perfume. Tangy, fruity palate. There is a touch of green apple, white grapes, peach and pinewood. Quite light with an English malt flair coming through all toasty and sunny. Musk candy and candied mango add to the list as does some mint, fresh cracked pepper and eucalypt. Moderately bitter but it drops off quickly. Clean and balanced. Light and effortless. A melter for 7.2% ABV. (33cL, BB 19/03/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Da série IPA is Dead de 2014, sem dúvida, a melhor. Muito saborosa, refrescante, frutada e com amargor muito equilibrado com os 7,2% ABV.
