There’s a nice balance of alcohol, hops and malt at the beginning, with notes of grapefruit, pine, honey, toast and coffee, but the taste of burned toast gradually grows stronger and stronger until it’s the overwhelming aftertaste. Starts well, finishes a little too strong.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hop aroma for IPA. Aroma gets a bit malty. Heavy roasting and low carbonation. Description on the back of the bottle doesn’t give a matching sensory account of its content in my humble opinion. In short heavy roasting and average bitterness with some shy hops.
