Bottle. Bronze with a clear body and a small head.A slightly spicey flavour with some maltiness floating in the background.Some maltiness but not a lot of hops so I wouldn’t class it as an IPA. Despite this it is still very drinkable.

A nice IPA, lots of hoppy aroma and flavour of a slightly different character than the usual american hop suspects. Nice but not really exceptional.
