Bottle from archer road beer stop, sheffield. Misty amber ale with off white head. Very malty for an ipa, lots of wood and bread. Taste is sweet and balanced with subtle buy lasting bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium body. Very nice.

A curious creature, sampled alongside the IPA and Red Rice from the same brewery. The aromas were a little more forthright than the IPA, offering masses of apricot, peach and and stonefruit, but less of the herbals that came with the IPA. The mouthfeel was sherbety and came with a fair bit of sweetness and punchy bitterness. A tasty drop I enjoyed for some time because of the bitterness provided.

Ja, för att vara en ipa så tyckte jag den inte var bra. Mer som en besk mer än vanligt humlad lager.
