This IPA is not particularly Pale. In fact it’s a deep ruby red. Based on a modern American style beer from Oregon using Cascade and Centennial hops in appropriate proportions, for bittering, aroma and dry hopping balanced with a strong Crystal malt backbone.

50 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange to light brown with a huge, tan and dense head. Aroma is mild brett to barnyard aroma. Herbal, brett, leathery and dry bitter flavoured. Vague fruity note. Smooth bitter and leathery finish. Malty Orval, far from the hops mentioned.

Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy, fruity, and dusty hops, combined with notes of caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, dust, malt, and caramel, as well as lighter notes of elderflowers, leading to a bitter finish.

oh6gdx (24903) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2012
Bottled@Euston Tap, London (Autumn 2011). Hazy rubyish amber colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts with mild toasted notes as well as some nice fruity, floral and grassy hops to it. Flavour is rather much the same in a very pleasant balance. Quite bodied as well. A bit crisp carbonation, but otherwise good. Deeper in colour than many Black IPA’s/Cascadian Darks that I have had.

Cloudy amber beer, nice creamy tan head. Light dry palate. Tea like malt, a little creamy. Aromatic hops - a little grassy and with a touch of lemon and grapefruit citrus. Finishes slightly soft. Okay but doesn’t really sing.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan, bb 13-06-14
Dark brown color with reddish hue; huge head. Deep aroma, hops in the front, some fruits, then biscuits and caramel, finally English yeast. The mouthfeel is semi-dry, there is too much carbonation; with strong caramel flavor, dark caramel, touch of roasted malt, and light liquorice; it has a good blend of resiny hops and yeast; the final is a bit spicy.
Lot of character; but also rough.
