The aroma is sweet, sticky, pine, resin, stewed orange, peach, candied peel, muffing, Irn Bru and leather. The taste is bitter, boozy, resinous, orange peel, peach muffin, candied citrus and some stickiness with alcohol through the finish. Medium+ body and average carbonation.

Bottle at RB London Meet. Hazy orange color, small white head. Heavy hop load mixed with butterscotch. Medium-bodied. Flavor has orange jam, pineapple and alcohol. Quite hoppy and heavy. Sweetish finish. crossovert (14233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2016
650ml bottle. Pours a hazed amber much darker than the typical pw DIPA. Huge aroma though even though i know this one is semi-old at this point, snatched it out of a cooler. The aroma is sweet herbs, berry, citrus, very juicy but not in the typical ipa way. Falvor is interesting, very viscerally herbal, nutty, piney, with a hint of orange, good finishing bitterness, not too sweet. Nice stuff here.
