Bottle at Monk’s Café, Wallingatan
Hazy copper to amber color; medium creamy head. Excellent hoppy aroma, perfumy and fruity (oranges, bitter oranges), a bit earthy and sweaty too, very light cheese touch. Good body strength and mouthfeel, round; strong caramel flavor, with the necessary residual sweetness; strong hopping, first oily, but resiny and fruity as well. Powerful and long final. No surprises (an Imperial IPA as we had many already), but very solid.
