look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance - Clear amber/light-copper colour with a large size fizzy/frothy off-white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for 7 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, caramel, hops, grapefruit
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel and some hops. There also seems to be a bit of a cherry or almond flavour that I don't remember from the 2010 version.. It ends with a malty sweet fruity aftertaste with a nice dose of hop bitterness.
Overall - Fantastic amount of fresh hop bitterness.. I always look forward to when this beer comes out. It doesn't have a whole lot of citrus fruit flavour that is common in the IPAs that I enjoy, but it makes up for it in delicious malts and fresh hop flavour.
Serving type: on-tap
