IPA that is super drinkable with a big dry hop character and plenty of malt body. If we could only produce one beer this would be it.

sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle sample @ English evening tasting at Malt Attacks, Brussels. Bouteille 50cl, BB 25/07/2015. Petit clin d’œil à Huxley et Bernard Marx ou alors à Shakespeare’s Tempest. Couleur légèrement orangée, col fin blanc crémeux. Arôme offre e suite un bouquet très anglais avec cette impression de foin/fourrage, sorte de cave et venant certainement de la levure. Retrouve le bouquet essentiel d’une ale anglaise au rétro-nasal de houblons nobles anglais. Palais reste pareil à l’arôme. Un côté très anglais tirant sur le Fuggles ou EKG et un léger coté agrumes. Le tout est sec et terreux sur un fini levure prononcé. Malt reste dans un style pâle, Marris. Pour moi, la bouteille, malgré sa date, semble un peu passée.
