Wow interesting. Not a subtle difference from normal ipa flavours but a nice sharp one.  No significant head with very little carbonation. Subtle aroma of tea and fruit. Flavour is a big smack of herbal tea! Sharp taste. Took me a minute to adjust and come around to this but I’m enjoying it. Certainly delivers what it intends!

Maersk (341) - MOLDOVA - NOV 6, 2017
Crystal clear, golden, small fluffy head, a lot of carbonation. Strong sweet hoppy aroma with some tea notes and a bit os candy. Medium body, greatly balanced, gentle but long bitterness in the end. A bit of tea tree in the aftertaste. Good

Cimbasso (1007) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 From a can from Waitrose. Golden colour and a white head. Nice citrus and malt aromas and a taste dominated by citrus (lemon and perhaps bergamot?) with a hint of tea flavour at the end. Also some spiciness and floral notes. A lightish beer, but the mouthfeel is OK. Very original and drinkable.
