MiP (15378) - Snderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, 5.6%. Good citric and grapefruity aroma. Hazy grey copper colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is sweetish and hoppy. The bitterness is quite rough, but there is a little fruitiness to balance it somewhat. On the whole, a flavourful IPA.

500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Lovely English hop aroma, really citrussy like a very fresh EKG or Fuggles, at flame-out ot later. Not lacking in pleasant sweet malts though, a good balance. Lovely in the mouth, gentle bitterness, pleasant carbonation, pleasantly full biscuity malty sweetness, smooth, and succulent. Lovely ESB taste, perfect balance, lacking nothing. So easy to drink, and really makes you want another. In some ways theres a bit of Fullers 1845 in it, but this is hoppier. I think I might have a few more of these, and see whether I can persuade myself to bump up one of the scores, as 3.7 seems a bit of an underrate, this is an *excellent* strong bitter.
