(On tap) Beautiful, clear, dark amber with a small, off-white head. Very fat hop aroma. Medium body with rich, caramelish notes and then an extremeky fresh, citrusy hopping that leaves a solid but not overpowering bitterness. Doesn’t really appear to be 7.5% 240806

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse 68, Stockholm) Colour is dark brown, leaning towards mahogany, with a firm off-white head. Nose is malty, with underlying fruitiness, notes of dried fruit, dark cherries, blackberries and dusty hops. Taste is rather complex: starts fruity with dried fruit, prunes, raisins and underlying notes of dusty hops, turns maltier with chocolate, caramel and dark cherries, leaves slowly with fat notes of dusty hops in a bitter-sweetish finish. Complex stuff, but with great balance.

Not really the ipa i’d hoped for. Aroma is grassy with some caramel. Taste is similar and overly bitter for the amount of hop in the aroma.
