UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 An excellent beer to contrast with the usual/standard IPA. Not as strong as expected for the style - which is just as well given you will want more than one.

Lustrous rosy amber with an off-white head and a gentle tinge of sparkle. This is a sexy looking beer. Aromas of caramel and rosehip, rosewood, turkish delight... there seems to be roseate theme here. In the mouth there develops flavours of mature dates, plums and darkish caramel. There is a lingering carob finish (I hate carob), but otherwise a charming ale.
