4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Drank only 3 weeks from ’bottled on’ date, brought direct from the brewery) The aroma is mostly passionfruit, honey and cream. Similar to a solero ice cream. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel with low carbonation. Not much head or lacing. Taste is tropical fruit, spice and a little clove. There is a nice bitterness on the top of the throat, with a balanced warmth from the alcohol. Absolutely beautiful IPA!
