3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany) pours hazy copper orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out herbal hops, floral notes, and a bready caramel maltiness. Flavour is quite odd, with some weird vegetal notes, pungent herbal hops, and a bready caramel maltiness. Flavour profile seems to transition through various phases, starting with the vegetal notes, moving towards the more conventional IPA-hoppiness, and then to the bready caramel malts. Not the most refined recipe here, but it’s quite drinkable and moderately enjoyable.
