IPA that is super drinkable with a big dry hop character and plenty of malt body. If we could only produce one beer this would be it.

NonOperational (60) - - AUG 31, 2013
The taste initially reminds me of Goose Island IPA with its reassuringly woody resin, but then a soft, grapey, gooseberry fool taste emerges, and is really New Zealandy. The hops have a fantastic leafy, fresh quality (best before 22/1/14). Next, the 7%ness of the malt bill politely makes itself known, with oat & breadcrust. Couldn?t be better balanced. Really a world class IPA.

Aroma: biscuit, pine, grapefruit ; 1st nose is floral, grapefruit, and maybe mango, low alcohol feel, 2nd half of glass is more bitter; Appearance: copper, hazy, white minimal head ; Taste: medium to high bitterness, light sweetness ; full body, slick feel, soft carbonation, long bitter finish. The mouth is filled with biscuit and citrus flavour. Very drinkable, classic but efficient. Would pair well with smoked ham and Comt.
