330 ml bottle. BB 22/04/15. From Estonia. Thanks MPEH!
Clear copper colour with a tiny foamy off-white head.
The aroma is really nice with caramel malty sweetness, tropical fruits, strawberries, woody dryness and mild bitterness. American Pale Ale style.
The flavour is sweet caramel malt, moderate bitterness, dark woody dryness, hops and mild resiny notes. Quite nice.

Its more sweet than it is bitter, with high noshes of toffee, Aroma has a lot of spice in it. So a mixed bag of things. Itís ok, itís not making me bursting into a Mexican Wave of appreciation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Blue Glass, Bedford. Amber/copper, decent carbonation with very little head. Heavy malt scent with caramel and papaya overtones. Taste is very malty for an IPA, more a English than American really. Bittersweet taste leads to a sweetish umami finish. Proper stuff, although nowhere near what I was expecting!

Darker amber pour than a typical IPA. Beige head. Malty flavors, kind of a one hop pony but not too bad.
