look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
355ml bottle, served chilled in a Duvel glass. 6.8%abv
Pours with a rich shimmering copper toned body, hints of rich amber and a few red hues. Dense, tight off white head with great retention. Amazingly thick strands of lacing stick to the inside of the glass
Smell, alcoholic estery tinged english hop aroma, fresh berries, some faint pine aroma. Little bit of almond and zesty lemon and lime. A slightly buttery malt character also, tiny little bit of mustiness too.
Taste, initially a crisp solid malt profile soon kicked into touch by tonnes of crisp english bittering hops. The hops seem very distinguishable, the flavours seem to comes through in easily identifiable stages. Rich almost quinine like bitterness from the hops, little bit of freshly squeezed tangy orange juice. Lots of lasting bitterness on the palette
Another winner from the Brooklyn brewery. A very drinkable IPA considering the strength, tasty and full of hoppy bitterness. That said its not quite as well rounded and balanced as say Stone IPA or Celebration Ale.... the flavours seem a bit uncontrolled and don't seem to mould well together, however still a very drinkable brew
I paired this with a hot pepperoni and jalepeno pizza, good combo
