On tap at Vices & Versa.

Pours a russet colour. Head is cream-coloured, dense with small bubbles. Decent lace. Pretty good.

Smells intriguing. Floral and spicy. Citrus, hibiscus and pepper with smoked meat notes and capsicum. More intriguing than outright 'wow, yum' but definitely worth a sniff.

Taste is huge caramel and toffee. Massive malt notes, almost underfermented at times, but yeah big sweetness on the front then hop oils on the finish. Quite big, kinda crystallised sugar on there. Interesting balancing act to it as well with the hops. Not ideal, a bit one way then the other. Like a clothes dryer in beer form.

Foamy, full body, maybe a bit sticky but otherwise superb texture.

Decent big IPA. But yeah, this style worries me a lot of the time, and this is a case in point. Just tone it down a little bit.
