Bottled at RBESG. Hazy nut brown, small head. Grapefruity nose. Sweet and full flavoured. Bold caramelly malt dipped in hop sauce with graepfruit and salmiak. Medium to full bodied. Bitter salty licorice finish. Interesting in that I’ve never tasted as much salmiak in an IPA.

28th April 2009
Very dark amber beer, almost brown. Semi dry palate, a little soft. Very dark IPA! Really not that hoppy for the style. A fair bit of malt. a touch of marmalade hops and then more malt and some licorice spice in the finish. Smooth and well joined up but a curious IPA.

Fresh new keg.
Cloudy dark amber color; medium sized creamy head. Nice aroma, hoppy and fruity, with hints of chocolate. Good body strength; it has strong caramel flavor, some toffee and light chocolate too; very light fruit touch, but strong bitterness; it actually is more solid than fresh. The final is bold, long, but without excitement, and so this beer overall.

The presence of good hops is confirmed: very nice aroma. But less sweet than I remembered; and the final is not showing enough hop qualities, mostly bitterness.

Hazy amber color; creamy head. It has a very nice aroma of American hops (it’s brewed with Centennial, Chinook and Cascade). It has good body strength, powerful caramel flavor and toffee, with enough sweetness, then the oily extreme hopping; there is a light astringency, probably because the bottle was shaken. Very long and strong final. Very good.

Beautiful hazy amber color; creamy head. It has an excellent aroma of creamy hops and caramel. The flavor is basically toffee, with strong bitterness (and some nice hop oils), a touch of liquorice (unpleasant) and traces of yeast (unexpected). Good for the hops, the rest should be reconsidered.
