2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. poured light amber with good carbonation and a neatly formed off-white head. The aroma was a little malt and some berried fruits. The body itself wasn’t particularly heavy given the strength. There was a biscuit malt backbone with a leading tart edge of fruitiness that developed into a dry finish.
An old-school IPA that may appeal to those who like their beers on the traditionally sharp side, rather than a modern hop bomb. But for me it just lacked the hop edge I was expecting.
