The beer looks like a proper IPA. The color of the brew is a nice amber. The beer is a bit cloudy. On top a rich layer of rough, slightly orangy foam is formed. Retention is good, a nice thick drape remains on top of the beer.
The smell is good. It is not as citrusy as most IPA’s. There is a nice maltiness, enhancing the hops. The hops have some nice rather sweet and fresh fruit aroma’s, not that citrusy, more stone fruit, maybe some spruce. It is nice. There is also a nice bitter component of the hops. Good one. It is not that extremely strong though. It could have been a bit stronger.
The taste is pretty much the same. Nice bitter but fresh and fruity hops and an enhancing malt base. There is a tiny astringent bitterness though, which seems a tiny bit of. This doesn’t really contribute to the taste. It interferes with the balance a bit. Could have been better.
The palate isn’t bad, but not really special. Medium light body and carbonation, rather thin texture. The finish isn’t that long and has a dryish bitterness. All in all, a good beer, but defiantly not the best one around.
