Percy0103 (258) - MEXICO - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. A semi-cloudy beer with a lot of small sediments and a big frothy white head. Fruity aroma with hops, pine resin, mint and a hint of caramel. Couldn’t find the typical grapefruit aroma of most IPAs. Taste is bittersweet with a medium to strong hoppy finish. Faint carbonation and mild astringency. Medium bodied with a sweet aftertaste.

Sdaniel90 (523) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle, 50cl. Murky golden/amber with visible sediment and a large, frothy offwhite head with pretty lacing. Fresh fruity hop aroma with hints of caramel and pine resin. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Sweet with a subtle but pleasing bitterness. Smooth and creamy, but quite astringent. Well balanced with a rich roasted character to match the bitterness. Smooth roasted bitter finish. A superb IPA.

A well-made (as you’d expect from this brewer) classic IPA. Malty (like mikkeller) backbone with orange sweetness complemented by piney, citrusy hops with a lingering bitterness. Very solid.
