3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with medium white head. Aroma of red berries, citrus, grapefruit, marmalade, tangerine, biscuit and light butter. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of red berries, caramel, citrus and biscuit. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Ok, but too sweet.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours clear medium dark brown with a nice light beige head, good retention and lacing - surprisingly dark.. blind folded - i would guess a light bipa... anyhow, the brew is relatively roasted, some burnt caramels, fruity, resin-plenty, some minerals and plenty of yeast. average to soft carbonation, light body - watery, short but present grassy-spicy finish. more aromatic than bitter. decently done, aside its darker side. o-k.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from IPB..
Appearance : Amber with small head.
Aroma : Resinous and piny hops with caramel. Nice woody notes. Light overcooked caramel notes. Toffee. Nice balance between malt and hops even if I’m not a big fan of caramel malt in IPAs.
Taste : Piny and resinous hops with caramel. Light alcohol. Finish quite resinous and piny with caramel. Persistent resinous notes. Slightly oily.
Overall : Not bad. Caramel malt is quite present but it’s rather well integrated with the hops. This could almost be a light Barley Wine or something like that. Tasty but not exactly what I’m looking for.
