Bottle. Black color with a brown head. A solid black IPA. It has a rich malty body with a well balanced and nicely hopped finish. The malts are nice and chocolaty and there really is a hint of tangerine in the aroma.


3.2
DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2017
Can from BottleDog, January 2016. Very nearly pitch capped densely with a slightly undulating off white foam. Aroma of dark sauces; soy, oyster, Worcester, some plummy yeast, soapy hop and cinder toffee. Restrained soapy and floral hop, sultana fruit, malt loaf. Not much happening on the roasted front. Weirdly more like an IPA than many US IPAs because it actually eschews soggy malt sweetness in favour of hop. Hints of peach, pine, liquorice and Soothers. OK.

Can at home. Aroma is fruity hops, dark malt, slight roast, pine resin, caramel, some citrus and cocoa. Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate to medium bitter. Medium bodied. Not as roasty of fruity as most BIPA, but piney hops instead. Nice.

Werckmeister (3126) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 18, 2016
0,355l can at home. No obvious BB date. almost black color, small tan head. smells quite nice fruity / herbal, grapefruit, grass, light notes of mango, very light sweetness, some earthy notes, lovely fresh smell. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of grapefruit, a bit citric, lemon grass, light notes of licorice, spices, quite a bit of grass. finishes rather fruity and only very light bitter with notes of grapefruit, lemon grass and a very light sweetness. quite lovely beer, taste is rather light especially considering the ABV, but this makes it easily drinkable. also not overly complex but still quiet enjoyable. finish gets a bit boring when warm.
