330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Nice fruity aromas, sweet ones. Pours murky light orange, not really appealing even keeping the sediment in the bottle, with some off-white head, vanishing, some lacing. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is citrusy, some tropical fruits, peach, mango, with a thick malty body, robust, well balanced. Some bitter aftertaste. Really enjoyable.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Re-rate Keg at Hanging Bat 19/11/13. Someone told me to try this on Keg as it’s much, much better. And they were right! Miles better than the bottle I had back in May. Paler in colour and bursting with tropical fruits, and a lovely lingering bitter finish. Excellent stuff.
Bottle at home 25/5/13. Pretty boring to be honest. Pours amber, so darker than expected. Nose has hints of tropical fruits, but only hints. Doesn’t follow through on the taste - too malty. Basically Boring British Brown Beer (with a few more hops than normal BBBB) (A5/A3/T4/P3/O10=2.5)

Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends, Cph. Pours hazy orange with a small, staying, creamy white head. Aroma has resin, apricot, bergamot, citrus. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good crisp and light doughy malts, piney hops at first. Then apples, peach, pineapple, apricot. Lingering bitter finish. Nice and fat.

Keg @ The Earl Of Essex 2013/5/7 Absolutely delicious! Can’t believe I’ve only just discovered this. A proper US style IPA brewed in Britain. It’s got the balance and none of the astringency so common in the UK. I’m wearing a cold so hard to focus on the nose but this is all about the flavour anyway. Brilliant.
