3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
300 ml bottle drank at Les Vignerons. Dark amber, slightly hazy, with a tiny, creamy and persistent yellowish head. Fruity and toffee forward nose, a hint of grapefruit marmelade, light roots as well. Quite resiny and herbal overall. Taste follow suite, nutty and slightly toasted, big caramel malts presence, strangely a bit of boozy astringency too. Velvety mouthfeel, moderate to high bitterness with a pleasent sugary feeling. Average carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Not what I was expecting, but nice nonetheless.

Pours dark red color with a large head. Lots of mandarin and floral hops on the nose, some resinous notes, pine and maybe some caramel-y malts too. Juicy fruity flavor, orange and bitter malts, lots of resin too. A bit sweet but decent hop profile. Okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A classic one with classic hops and citrus in the aroma. Enjoyed it with its crispy taste and some vanilla in the back. A bit special and slightly skunky but not what you would call boring at all.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint in Shakespeare pub, Sheffield. Close to the perfect beer. Pours a deep red which was a little surprising having read the name. Intensely hoppy nose, and even hoppier taste. As much flavour as most strong American IPAs, but at 5.5% much easier on the ABV.
