Teku glass. Bottle. Amber/orange like with thin to medium, semi-densed, white head, which dissapears fast. Poor lacing. Aroma of caramel and little toasty, in the background maybe honey. Hops aroma is not so noticable mainly some rasin and floral aroma. The taste in the beginning sweet and mild, but quickly it comes with medium bitterness. It becomes most intensed in the middle of degustation with nice hoppy aftertaste. Light to medium body, thin texture, medium carbonation. Finish is bitter and dry. In overall solid IPA, little bit too mild because. It could be nicer if the aroma is more intense.

Resiny, lightly citrusy and piney hops and deeply nutty, sweet caramel malt in the aroma. Maltier than expected. Flavor is very sweet and toffee-centric, with resiny and modestly citrusy notes. The carbonation is a bit high. Lightens up the heaviness of the malt dominance. I like it, but it's more malt forward than expected.
