3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was originally introduced for the Brewpublic/Saraveza Imperial IPA Fest, however I enjoyed a taster at The BeerMongers... Poured golden-yellow/orange with a thin head. Massively hopped and quite bitter. I wouldn’t say the malts were strong enough to balance, however the Belgian yeast (I believe the De Ranke strain) offered some dirty, earth-like esters and spices to turn it around towards the finish.
