3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at CBC, pours a hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma of resinous, piney hops, some tropical fruits, and a thin malt backbone.
Flavour is like a barnyard with notes of hay, horse blanket, quite dry biscuity malts. Very wild and full barnyard notes. Very unorthodox for an IPA, but the uniqueness is very pleasing. Great stuff.
