2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Extremely carbonated. So much so that a 33 cl bottle wouldn’t fit in my point glass and should over. Also caused the trub to be churned up from the bottom resulting in a really cloudy beer with floating particles. Aroma is slightly citrus and a little herbal. Mouthfeel totally dominated by the over-carbonation. Pleasant taste, although not bitter enough for the ipa label.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
04/12 0.33 l bottle from Vinoteca Belostikale, Bilbao. It poured hazy, darker copper body with quite big white head. Caramel aroma touched with light but fine coffee aroma and a bit of citrus hops. Lightly sweet, fine flavor, caramel, biscuit, toffee, generally toasted and slightly herbal from hops. Medium bodied with quite long, caramel and a bit plastic finish. Not a real IPA, maybe APA, but a pleasant beer than wouldn’t suffer from heavier body!
