On tap at Alus celle in Riga: typical Ipa aroma and taste. Bitter and a bit sharp. Very well balanced drjoeng (1291) - SINGAPORE - NOV 4, 2015
9.75%ABV. Imperial IPA.
Tapped out a deep amber. 18ºSRM.
Nose is sweet, with aromas of fresh warm barley bread, roasted acorns and some other rich nutty aromas of roasted almond, hazelnut and pecans.
Mouthfeel syrupy and soapy. Palate has a funkly umami that is reminiscent of sardines or any other equivalent small oily fish in a tin. There are of course nutty, roasty, caramel and toffee like flavours. There was a sweet alcoholic palate which I for me was just a little much. A very personal thing. I wouldn’t say it was a bad thing, just not for me.
Finish is bitter and a little cloying. I guess that was the play on words they were hoping for "IBU". Well there certainly was plenty of BUs to go around! Thranemeister (28) - DENMARK - OCT 28, 2015
Caramel cloudy look. It has a light citric aroma, but not much. Perhaps its too cold. Very rich and sweet taste. RhetoricalAns (939) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
330 mL bottle. Slightly hazed amber, thin beige head. Floral and pine hop aroma. Taste is big on the hops, piney, resin, fairly bitter finish. Overall nice balance though. User369532 (907) - - OCT 18, 2015
