341 ml bottle.

A-Very nice orange amber colour with very good bubbles and a nice light beige head.

S- Fruity hops. Some dusty carbonation at first. Caramel malt.

T- Dissappointing wateriness up front, but this fades as the beer warms and flavours start to come through. Pleasant bitter finish. Middle includes pleasant caramel and fruity flavours.

MF- Good body, but nothing special to note here.

D- I was worries this would be too hopped, but the balance was quite nice. Good mealtime flavourful ale. I had it with a home made Indian curry, with which it paired well.

This is different from the Indian Pale. Poured out an orangey brown color with a frothy off white head that sticks to the side like super lacing glue. The nose is strong hops, grapefruit pith, pine, oregano, marjoram, and slight sweet malt. The taste seems watered down, bitter, oily hops, lacking in true body or flavor. The mouthfeel has medium body and medium cabronation. The ghastly burning bitterness keeps this from any hope of being a drinkable beer.
