I’m very glad I read the description prior to opening this one, because as an ESB, this makes sense. Good balance and strong malt backbone without ignoring the spicy hop character. Amazing finish that keeps you wanting another gulp.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml brown bottle, abv 4.6%, b@Ica Isrenna Tromsø.
Moderate white head, sprangled lacings, amber body, hoppy scents with much spruce and rich roasted malts to the nose too.
Broad taste; hops, roasted malts, spruce, resin, caramel, bitter, well balanced overall.
Dry and fresh ending, where taste continues, plus hints of apricot and almond and lemon-peel, and the final is also well balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from Jumbo, Santiago. Pours a hazy amber color with a big white head. Aroma is hoppy with plenty of english character, lemongrass, pine and cedar. Taste is moderately bitter with a nice astringent finish that leaves some zest aftertaste behind. Light bodied, maybe too much for an IPA but pleasant and refreshing. A well made, quality brew but maybe a little bit overexpensive.
