Helt ok men inget häftigt direkt. Drucken vid flertal tillfällen på fat i NY.

355ml bottle. Pours a pale biscuity gold with a white head. Aroma: Pine, citrus, grapefruit, mild caramel malt notes. Pleasant aroma. Taste: Pine, citrus, grapefruit, mild mango, peach, caramel malt flavours. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Moderate to high bitterness that lingers on the palate. A basic flavour balance, but nevertheless it is quite tasty. Would happily drink this as my regular. sephyrott (198) - - OCT 6, 2017
33cl from bottle bought at Waitrose. Well-balanced IPA, slightly citrusy, hoppy and strong flavour ALLOVATE (3055) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2017
So, now brewed under contract in Australia by the macro monster CUB. This shows in many ways from label, to aroma........, to flavour. Sudsy, messy white crown off the pour is quickly diminished to a mere island of white. Radiant, orange amber body, bright as bright. Slightly vegetal, boiled cabbage, oxidised metal and rubbery tinge to the otherwise spicy and earthy hop and biscuity malt nose. There is a hint of bay leaf and rosemary in there too. Malt forward, chewy, barnyard grain and cereal-like right through to the assertively bitter and slightly acrid finish. Light honey sweetness upfront. Chalky and mineral-like mouthfeel. Weedy, acrid hops (tetra?) last well passed their welcome. Body is light to medium with spritzy carbonation flattening to still as it head south. Really disappointing. I don't for one minute think this represents the original ale produced before s#!t hi the fan with Goose Island. Unbalanced mess!!! (33cL, BB 07/02/18, 1st Choice Liquor, Riverton)
