Can at C'est What, 473ml into a tulip.
Dark brown with some violet highlights and a beige head. Creamy in texture, but extremely short lived. A collar remains and only a shred of lace. Nose has some brown ale character, but substantial hop notes are dominating. Harsh grapefruit and some other citrus, some dark bread and a bit of caramel. Flavour has both prominent breadiness and malt flavour, again, grapefruit among other citrus. Just a ton of bittering hops here, not much in the way of flavouring or dry-hopping. Medium body, and a lingering bitterness that I didn't really care for. An OK beer, but doesn't have enough flavour or intrigue to warrant revisiting again.

Can: Poured a clear medium brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of grainy malt with light dry caramel notes with some funky and lightly citrusy hops notes. Taste is a weird mix between some unrefined grainy cereal notes and some stale hoppy notes with light citrus undertones. Body is about average with good carbonation. I either got a bad can of this or maybe it just didn’t fit my style but I though the hops were stale and lacking and the malt base used wasn’t the greatest.

Pours a beautiful dark and clear mahogany amber, with decent off-white head and lacing. Mouthfeel is pleasant, but a tad thin and carbonation is not overwhelming.
Am currently enjoying a can purchased at the brewery on the day of its release. Have enjoyed this beer on draught at Wellington and at the Kick Off (Waterloo) - and it is has a much superior aroma and flavour depth when on tap. However this is a review of the can, from which the aroma is almost uni-dimensional caramelized malts with a subtle nut spice undertone. The flavour has a delightful dry hopped finish, but a rather simple caramelized malt sweetness in the mouth. Again, a better balanced and more complex taste in the 3 kegs I've tried.
Although this first batch can't compete with DogFish Head India Brown Ale (of which I just had a sip and it remains superb), it is fantastic to see Wellington attempting hopped one-offs and I hope they continue!!! Definitely moving in the right direction...
