Thanks to Colin for saving me one of these, Cheers Ears. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Mellow dark malts. A little dark chocolate and a trace of coffee. Nice minty pine hops. Smooth semi dry finish brings mild hop spice. Very nicely joined up and smooth. That minty vibe really lifts it.

Medium sweet flavor with nice toasty-roasty malt character, a bit of burnt pine, oily hops, ripe citrus. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head. The aroma is citrus hop and pine. More hop forward than roast forward, nice smoothness compared to over bitter over roast from regular black ipas. Scopey (15008) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
