A interesting one from IPA is dead. But not surprising. But is a BrewDog! Spicy and citrus.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
20.4.2014. Clear pale colour, almost no head. By memory the aroma is most different from the others in the series. It reminds of some alcohol and flowers. Taste has some sweetness, almost like bubblegum, also more common pine bitterness, fruitcake, lime. Easy to drink but a bit boring.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 0,33L. Hazy copper colour, small, off-white, creamy head, excellent lacing and no visible carbonation. Hoppy aroma of plum brandy reminds me of Schneiderweisse Tap 5 - Meine Hopfenweisse, one of my favourite German beers. There is some piney aroma, too. Light bitter taste with plum brandy note (again). Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. This one is my favourite in Ipa is dead series.

Bottiglia da 33cl
Color miele, molto torbida. Schiuma praticamente inesistente. Il luppolo spicca all’olfatto, con le sue note floreali ed erbacee, con punte di malto. In bocca il luppolo si sposa bene con le note maltate, per una buona rotondità e struttua complessiva, anche se manca sostanzialmente di complessità. L’amaro del Kohatu rende secco e gradevole il finale, il che rende la birra piuttosto beverina. Carbonazione vivace, corpo medio. Da Brew Dog ci si aspetta di più; come per il resto della serie IPA IS DEAD, la birra si presenta piatta nel complesso.
