2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium sized, vast and slowly changing, beige creamy colored foamy head on top of a deep dark red beer, when hold in the light it appears to be an almost clear deep ruby colored beer.
The aroma is nothing like an IPA, a thin mix of caramel, autumnal herbs, brown sugars/molasses, grains, a hint of sharp hop citrus and stingy herbs.
The flavours are like the aroma nothing like an IPA: yeast, sharper herbs, hint of hops, bitter, sharper herbs, stingy hops, malts, nuts, caramel, meal, porridge and dusty malts.
Aftertaste is bitter with herbs, yeast, wood, malts and (sharper) herbs.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.
I hope I had a wrong bottle, if not, this is not a good IPA, while I had other IPA’s from this brewery that were pretty ok, this beer does not come close to those beers, let alone IPA’s in general. Pity!
