2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In short: A very dank and yeasty golden IPA. Meh.
How: Bottle 330ml at L’Espumossa Art & Cervesa, Barcelona.
The look: Partly cloudy golden body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: Nose is very dank sweaty hops, I’ve rarely has such a damp basement sensation smelling a fresh IPA, even sweaty notes coming through. In mouth the beer has a full body fluffy texture with a medium carbonation. Tate is a big fluffy yeast mixture, wort, sweaty armpits, caramel, resin, bitter orange peels, overripe fruits. Bitterness level is quite high. A total lack of brightness in the flavors, not refreshing, not fun. That was the first beer I drank in Spain, I was as frustrated and as sad as a tyrannosaur-rex at a party who cannot throw his hands in the air and wave them like he just don’t care.
