3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber, with a large off-white head, which lasts well and leaves reasonable lacing. Charry, slightly nutty malt is overlaid by fresh floral and fruity hops in the aroma. Strong floral and pine resin hops up front lead into a fruitier flavour. Nutty and biscuit malt come in at the mid-palate, with a slight spiciness and some pine hops in the finish. This offers quite a nice combination of hops and malt flavours. An enjoyable ale.

Dark Amber color, not much foam. Slightly bitter taste, with some malt and caramel. Very nice middle of the road ale, I would not call it an IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 650ml. A cloudy brown beer with a lot of sediments and a small brown head. Aroma is of dried fruits. Taste is bitter with a strange aftertaste that reminds me of malt, spices and dirt. Medium bodied with considerable carbonation and astringency. Very unusual IPA with none of the traditional hoppy character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 650ml. Opaque brownish with a frothy tan head and visibile sediment. Musky caramel and floral hop aromas. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry and oily, with low to no sweetness and a stinging fruity bitterness. Intense spicy character and astringency. Harsh with very rooty flavors. Unusual ale, not unpleasant but not the most drinkable. Reminds me of cheap whisky watered down with mineral water.
