look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 22 oz brown bomber with a “best before last day of” freshness date on the side of the label, funny little pic of a dead horse and buzzard on the front. Good amount of sediment on the bottom of the bottle.

Appearance: The foaming action is a treat! Lots of stickage and the head stays while the beer is there. A dark reddish orange unfiltered beauty.

Smell: The aroma is lively and jumping around with alcoholic esters, pungent and woody hop and a coarse mix of malt and yeast.

Taste: Full in the mouth from a lush and creamy malt built palate, bottle conditioned carbonation and solid medium body. It raw baby … Yeah! Fruity and pungent from both the hops and fruity esters. A touch buttery under the layered maltiness. Bitterness from the hops is more than sufficient with woody and oil undertones. Yeast is quite perceivable with lots of mineral and chalky nutty flavours. Finish with a lot of residual flavour as well as some sweetness.

Notes: This is a balls to the wall English style IPA, perhaps they brewed something like this back in the day. Unfiltered and bottle conditioned for your tasting pleasure and it was certainly a pleasure for my taste buds.

Serving type: bottle
