33cl bottle, poured into an English Pint. Dark Orange colour with a generous off-white head. Hoppy herbal aroma, earth notes as well. Roasted flavours in the mouth, similar to barbacue, with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Good balance, body and carbonation. Peculiar single hop beer, like it.

Not my favourite, lacks that little something; I cannot put my finger on it. Still a good IPA though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Orange and amber with some bits floating in it. Small to medium , white head. Nose : tart and cooked cherries. some other cooked fruits. Pepper and citrus notes. Sip ; Oily texture, low carbonation and medium thick body. Woody and spicy dry sweet tart, develops dry and bitter notes on the end. Clove dryness is well balanced into this peppery and citrusy hop character. The beer is drinkable but it has this strong personality, almost heavy. Nether less I can’t dislike it.

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Interesting hop - mild grapefruit under a little lime. Subtle floral character. A little dry malt cream before the softer finish. All right.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bot more malty aroma than the other, but I didn’t get much out of the smell. Grape notes are present, together with some peaches and metallica notes. Very bittet finish. A bit unbalanced with just the magnum hops.
