2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle:   Deep caramel, reddish hued, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Mealy nose, pale breadiness,
slight mustiness.   Faint breadiness, maltiness, with a hint of ashtray on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are
moderate, leaning thin.   Has that really musty English IPA like aroma and flavor.   Why anyone would want to
duplicate that, I donít know.   Leave that to the English, to send over their beers to get extremely hot in containers
and them sell them at a premium on the west coast.   No need to brew a beer that exhibits that extreme heat factor.
Body and mouthfeel are thin to moderate.   Pale buttery malts and breadiness on the finish.   Blech, in terms
of authenticity, yep, tastes like ass.   This could have been on a ship for 2 months as far as I can tell.   Not a
beer style I would try to duplicate, unless I bumped up everything about it except the 130F container it sat in for a

Reddish in color, clear with a thin head. Nice strong hops and malt aroma and flavors. Good floral and earth like flavors. This was tasty and very dry in the finish. This has the big flavors and will leave you wondering what you just drank. One of the most interesting brews of the day.
