3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours quite cloudy dark orange golden into the glass with a fine off white head. Ok lacing down the sides of the glass. A bit sweet dried fruity, toffee and hoppy aroma. A fine medium + body. A little bit unbalanced sweetness versus bitterness. Not cloying in any way. Just a bit to much over to the sweet side. Soft carbonation. Nice complex flavor with dried fruit, resinous, some pine, raisins and quite hoppy. Decent and ok dipa, although a bit to much over to the sweet side for my likings.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Second IPA of the night and still shocked that it closely resembles the style. Piney with a little alcohol burn. Not expertly crafted but drinkable and pretty enjoyable.
