2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, dark yellow color with lots of head and upon closer inspection there are thousands of small particles floating around. The aroma is rather muted with some grain notes. This definitely does not have the hop presence usually found in IPAs. The taste is bitter citrus with a very dry finish. The body is medium. A below average IPA.
Bottle from Oddbin’s, Morningside, Edinburgh. Bit stale and musky - strong malt character comes through, but of dry pine and dried fruit, but overall it lacked quite a lot in the middle. Heidbummer (986) - SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle from Oddbins. Pours deep gold, slightly hazy, foamy head (a bit too foamy actually). Floral and funky aroma, almost a wee bit off. Oddly thin for the abv. Quite dry, the floral aroma doesn’t really follow through into the taste. OK, but a bit one dimensional. Sigmund (8030) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2017
