This was a very average ipa. Not much character, nothing really exciting. Not overly hoppy yet still not balanced. Disappointing.

Bottle courtesy of and shared with Iphonephan. Poured cloudy golden brown with a light frothy head and some fairly long lasting lace. Nice malty aroma. Warm bitter typical DIPA flavour but with a rather unusual aftertaste which I'm having trouble placing. Not my favourite DIPA, but nice to taste.

Taster at Standard Market. Certainly a big smack of hop in the nose and on the tongue, even in my little sample. A little estery for a big IPA, which gives it a fruity note playing off the hops. Bitterness seems only lightly piney and more juicy than citrusy. That may be because I was sampling wines before turning to Standard Market’s amazing tap list.
