COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Has been seen in cask.
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.

Dark red beer. Great strong taste straight away, liquorice, hops and a kick to it too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka 330ml. Ciemny mahoniowy kolor (sic!). Piana biala mala szybko opadajaca. W zapachu karmel potem szyszki i cytrusy. W smaku podobnie duzo karmelu i ciastek . Wszystkie tak typowe dla IPY smaki I zapachy zostaly w tym piwie stlumione przez dziwny posmak karmelowo-chemiczny . Bardzo ostre i ciezkie na finiszu dziwna gorycz dlugo utrzymuje sie w ustach. Dziwne...

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2016 Aroma is perfume sweet. Almost expecting to dip into a Corona "it’s frothy man". The red colour continues this expectation. The hopping is heavy but to be honest I would have preferred a fresher hop flavour and less bittering. Very harsh on the palate. If you have ulcers they will rip pen with each sip. Something artificial about this flavour.

Bottle at home. Pours a dark red amber. Decent sweet malt flavour. Some nuttiness, slight bitter bite. Smooth finish. Good.

Aroma is floral and hoppy with a touch of caramel. Nice taste. The fruity caramel sweetness balances well against the dryness of the hop.

Bottle at Figs. Straight from the bottle unfortunately. Aroma is pretty weak, slight toast, slight funk. Taste is big malts, bread, dry finish.

Had an interesting head, Orval style, long lasting. Aroma wasn’t too great but you could feel the hops. Flavourwise, a bit disappointed, was expecting a slightlier more hoppy flavour, just felt bitter with no taste, nothing special in particular
