I am not a fan of the BIPA, never really got into the trend of the style but I was clearly surprised by this ale.

When I poured it, it was a clear pitch dark beer that formed a nice foamy head that slowly let herself die slowly on my glass.

The smell was hoppy but with a shy hint of caramel, not very distinctive nothing to throw me overboard, but it is the taste.

Taste wise, it is the hoppiness and bitterness hitting you, but well balanced with hint of bananas and spices. Nothing is very too strong, it is well balanced. The aftertaste is bitter and round in mouth.
