Way way better than I remembered - massive hop oils, small malt character but the hops are awesome. Bonkers

SaintMatty (5316) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2012
750ml Bottle - Amber/copper with a foamy head. Marmalade, grapefruit and toffee in the aroma. Yeast, marmalade, nuts and grapefruit all feature in the taste. Almost tastes like a Belgian ale, rather than an IPA. I think it’s past its best, but still very drinkable.

Bottle. Golden brown with a large off white foam. Aromas are gooseberry and kiwi with melon and light pear. Caramel and biscuit with floral notes and honey with lemon. Flavours are sweet biscuit and melon with grapefruit and lychee. Caramel with toast and white wine. Spicy in the finish. There aren’t too many things more reliable than a Marble. Good.
