Steffan (67) - WALES - APR 7, 2016
Another IPA. Part of the glut of overly hopped beers calling themselves "craft". Aroma of slight BO. Appearance like a cloudy flat lager with poor head retention. Four hop flavour that makes it very very bitter in the mouthfeel department but the taste is as if all the different hop varieties had a massive fight and cancelled themselves out leaving an odd claggy taste at the end. Classic example of pretentious over hopping to disguise mediocre brewing. This beer makes me hate IPAs and want to punch anyone with a beard.
