50 cl bottle. Bottled on 03.12.2014.
Pours clear red color with a large head. Loads of resin on the nose, malts, some caramel notes, mild hops and some sweet tropical fruits, some cardboardy notes also as this is not that fresh anymore. Sweet resinous hops and caramel malts on the flavor, subtle gooseberries, orange and some mandarin. Bitter palate with a sweet malt-fruity finish. Sadly not so fresh anymore, decent still.

Bottle. Light amber, hazy, average to large and mostly lasting head.

Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light - some caramel - light bread with light tropical fruitiness, light - some grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and faint bread, light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - light citrus hoppyness. Caramel sweetness IPA with notes of bread.
