Flaska från Rosses i Torrades, Barcelona. Så här, just så här vill jag ha min BIPA. Tropiska frukter och lakrits i doften. Går att sitta länge och bara inandas. I smaken hittas citron, grape, soja, lakrits samt en nötig ton. Fyllig kropp, len smak. Riktigt, riktigt bra!

Don’t BIPAs taste of coins? I’m sure they do. Do brewers put coins in the mash? What is mash? I have no idea.

Bottle. Black beer with off white medium head. Aroma is very hoppy and pine. Taste is hops, pine, roasted malts, coffee, citrus and a touch of bitter chocolate. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. A very nice black IPA. I do prefer the Buxton Black Rocks slightly more though.
