fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Courtesy of Jan (fonefan); bb 20/09/12; could this be 6 months old?
Hazy amber color with generous creamy head. Mild but nice hoppy aroma, a bit fruity and metallic; late hop resins. The body is weak and the mouthfeel very dry; dry toffee flavor, with decent hop contribution, very light fruity touch, and some more piney resins; correct bitterness; the final is weak and not interesting, there is some paper. Drinkable, but possibly unfresh.

Coppery golden with a big, lovely, staying, creamy, light off-white head. Aroma is nicely grassy, some grapefruit, red apples. Nice and fresh with some strawberries thrown in. Medium to high carbonation, nice dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, good malty sweetness with some doughy and caramel notes. The hops are bitter and fruity with strawberries, grapefruit and grassy dryness in the finish. Quite an elegant IPA.
