3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Birrivico, Como, bb Aug 2015
Amber color, hazy, with large frothy head. Sweaty hops aroma, penetrating. Lean mouthfeel, rather dry, the flavor is on the caramel side, a bit papery too; strong bitterness; the hop provides mostly some hard resins, but also some orange fruitiness; and the final is a bit astringent.
Maybe not fresh, but very good.

(Tiny Rebel Urban IPA) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 5.5%
Dark orange colour, clear body, with a tall but a bit thin head, slightly off-white in colour. Low retention, medium lacing on the glass.
Nice aroma, citrus and grapefruit, along with orange peel and some caramel malts.
Taste has also citrus, some cookie dough and biscuit, light orange zest on the finish.

Quite good, it will surely be much better when fresher.

from Brewers Droop, Bristol
330ml bottle [BBE:Aug 15]
Blood Alc: 0
Bright nectarous fruit and honey aroma with resin and tropical hints. Strong, sweet and very favourable, although at first, I was taken aback. Flavour is dragonfruit (although I canít really remember what that tastes like but this taste reminds me of it) and partially solidified resin. Bitterness creeps up quite quickly but is balanced by the sense of sweetness. Carbonation is such that it fills your mouth and the almost syrupy texture of the liquid combined with this gives a sense of having a thick texture although the amount of carbonation as an isolated factor feels perhaps a little higher than Iíd personally prefer. This is a very solid IPA, not hugely imaginative but thatís ok as it does what it does very well
