Cybion (150) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours deep reddish amber, very cloudy, with around a finger of off-white head. Moderate amound of visible carb. Aroma of orange, lemon, spices, vegetation and earth in the backdrop. Bit of a sweet and syrupy character with some noticeable booze. Taste is honey and bready malts, nuts, more spice, some pepper around the sides, ending on more vegetation and earth with a moderately strong yet long lasting bitter finish. All flavours fairly balanced with nothing overbearing. Feels great on the palate - full, heavy body, creamy texture, moderate carb helping the pepper and spice leave a lasting tingle on the tongue. One for those who like their IPAs a little sweeter.
