(Redwillow Soulless) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a teku, ABV 6.5%
Black coloured body, two full fingers of thick, tan head on top, with great retention.
Aroma of citrus, chocolate, orange peel, quite hoppy.
Taste also of citrus, hops, orange peel, chocolate on the finish, light roasted malts, not an explosion of flavours but quite honest.
Medium thin body, here I’d like some more, carbonation on the low side.

Keg at BD, sheffield. pitch black with lasting off white head. Aroma is quite mild, faint treacle and tar. Taste is mild again, slightly sour and bitter. Tingly carbonation and thinnish body. Not really what I expect from a bipa, but quite pleasant to drink.
