Im sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a mug. Beer has been in my cellar for about a year.
Pours a clear chestnut hue and a slightly frothy beige head of 3 cm foams up and fades to a thick surface foam with a few larger bubbles mixed throughout. Some windowpane lattice after each sip.
The aroma is some husky malt and a bit of biscuit, this rolls to a floral hop presence and light pine. I suspect the nose may have faded a little, but the beer still smells pretty nice.
First sip reveals an average body with fine rolling carbonation that is gentle as it coasts across my palate.
Flavor is caramel and some grainy malt and then some dry bitter hits with citrus rind and some pine sap. I also get a little black peppery alcohol sneaking in, which I didnt expect.
The beer i very drinkable and may have been a little more hoppy fresh, but there is still a decent astringent bitterness on each sip.
No flaws and a well made IPA, without being over the top in booze or hops.
