Bouteille 330 mL. Blonde legerement trouble. Nez de fruits tropicaux et agrumes. Bouche abrasive, legerement savonneuse avec une longueur forte. Amertume sur un profil qui manque de finesse.

(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!

Really, Really like this. Poise, stylish and refined. So many IPA’s (a style i love) are OTT. "Lets smash everything in there and over power the drinker with hops, they’ll never know!" Not this IPA. There isnt much of a nose but it explodes in the mouth Good body, some residual sweetness but balanced perfectly with bitter hops. Finishes with juicy tropical fruits, pineapple, mango. A great beer.
