Pleasing IPA with a slighty coarse bitter edge.
Presentation: 750 ml brown custom DFH capped bottle. Iconic image of the man in black breaking the cask, albeit with a grouchesque disguise of fake nose/glasses/moustache. Was this because of a dispute about the use of his image? Small side note noting main characteristics and intent. Shows 7.5% Alc. by Vol. Served in tulip glass.
A - Clear pale amber pour. Generous frothy head with nice surface memory and retention, alongside good lacing.
S - Soft resinous nose with a biscuity malt dash to it. Slight fruit in the distance.
T - Citrus and pine, the bitterness is a bit coarse and without much range, slight sweet note over the biscuity malt.
M - Medium body and carbonation, slight pushy bitterness with a nice sense.
O - Good edge in the final flow but this sense of balance while pleasing is really not for me.
Notes: It is all kinds of decent and more… But it did not quite do it for me. The same happens with 60 to me I confess, and that lingering edge might be part of the reason why...
