At 6.9%abv., coming in a slim, long-neck 330ml brown bottle; BB 26/03/2015, served mildly chilled in a Hapkin’s branded short-stemmed tulip-shaped sniffer.

A: pours a murky, dark reddish amber colour, coming with a thick, dark beige cappuccino froth with very good retention, while the carbonation remains mild and sporadic.
S: overripe fruitiness manifests along with a thick body of mixed malts, with caramel, Munich and nutty malts in dominance, littered with some acidic sweetness from yeastiness and a faint touch of funk even. Given a very good swirl, resinous hops with a main theme of pine sprigs, earthy and also citric notes come to the fore, while the maltiness also presents a somewhat… “creamy” feature.
T: lightly effervescent, the flavour is full-bodied with crystal and pale malts in support of a light layer of spicy and piney hops, without lending any sweet influence; the aftertaste is earthy, tea-ish and burned nutty bitter, semi-raisin-like in aroma, and lightly chewy tannic, in a fashion almost as if roast malts are used in the boiling process, while a rather deep aroma as of toasted malts lingers in the very end alongside a light alc. warmth.
M&O: overall, the mouthfeel is refreshing and light against an unusually robust but not sweet malt backbone, resulting in an intriguing contrast on the palate. I can’t say I really like this version as the hop elements are far more pronounced in their bitter departments than in the aroma & flavour ones, but the thick body without too much sweetness really hooks my palate almost in the same way as a darker Premium Bitter could do. Worth trying for once at least, I think.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a 3-inch off-white rocky head which leaves clumpy lace.

N: Citrus (oranges), herbal, floral, vegetal, faint pine notes.

T: Follows nose with some fruity and floral from the yeast. Grainy and some spices.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Dry, yeasty and malty finish.

O: Nice aroma, but the flavor is rather dull to me.

Pours a cloudy burnt orange, with a super rich creamy light tan head. Aromas of minty hops, and a bit of dried fruit. Taste is some apricot up front, then some citrusy floral hops. An earthy bitter finish. Mouthfeel is rich. Overall quite a good IPA, but for the price, it falls a bit flat.
