330 ml bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a red-brown colour with a thick and full beige head. Aromas of citrusy and pine hops, and caramel malts. Taste is of bitter hops, with a sweet caramel to round it out. Medium length dry finish. Subdued for a quasi-double IPA, but still very nice.

This one was a beer I was looking forward to but instantly became unsure of as I poured the can & it looked a lot darker than I’d pictured in my head given I was expecting a standard American IPA. Thankfully the beer was one that grew on me, especially by the time I got to the taste with the darker malts & roasted flavours perfectly balanced against some pine & citrus hops with a little sweetness & sugar thrown in for good measure. It was definitely an unusual take on the style but it went down a treat & was easily on of the better beers I tried on my trip to Switzerland; great stuff & one well worth looking out for.
Can from Drinks of the World. Dark amber body with puffy head. Nose is malty, soapy, hoppy. Taste is also hoppy, caramel, malts and sugar. Pretty good. And out of a can. wekker84 (2530) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2015
