This IPA is not particularly Pale. In fact it’s a deep ruby red. Based on a modern American style beer from Oregon using Cascade and Centennial hops in appropriate proportions, for bittering, aroma and dry hopping balanced with a strong Crystal malt backbone.

fiulijn (20604) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - APR 5, 2013
Bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan, bb 13-06-14
Dark brown color with reddish hue; huge head. Deep aroma, hops in the front, some fruits, then biscuits and caramel, finally English yeast. The mouthfeel is semi-dry, there is too much carbonation; with strong caramel flavor, dark caramel, touch of roasted malt, and light liquorice; it has a good blend of resiny hops and yeast; the final is a bit spicy.
Lot of character; but also rough.

Bottle from Booths, Clitheroe. Clouded amber-brown with a very active head when poured from the bottle - frothy and disappearing. Has a stated tropical fruitiness with its strength very stated through this.

Butelka 330ml. Ciemny mahoniowy kolor (sic!). Piana biala mala szybko opadajaca. W zapachu karmel potem szyszki i cytrusy. W smaku podobnie duzo karmelu i ciastek . Wszystkie tak typowe dla IPY smaki I zapachy zostaly w tym piwie stlumione przez dziwny posmak karmelowo-chemiczny . Bardzo ostre i ciezkie na finiszu dziwna gorycz dlugo utrzymuje sie w ustach. Dziwne...
