330ml bottle - their 15th anniversary offering, and as poor a decision as using the word 'compliment' incorrectly in the marketing blurb. Well, here goes...

This beer pours a clear, bright pale golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, rocky, and mildly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some decent splotchy lace around the glass as it quickly evaporates.

It smells of bready and doughy caramel malt, muddled domestic citrus rind, weak oaken notes, and very little else. The taste is gritty and grainy cereal malt, faint orange and lemon citrus peel, an ethereal vanillan barrel woodiness, and some plain earthy, musty, and floral noble hop bitters.

The carbonation is pretty tame in its ephemeral frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and generally smooth, with nothing really a cause for concern at this particular point in the game. It finishes off-dry, the malt the only lingering concern.

Overall - yeah, big fucking surprise, I&G's version of this unnecessary IPA treatment thankfully comes in at merely underwhelming, as opposed to outright offensive, as is the norm. I get barely any hop or barrel character, and mostly malt. If you didn't tell me otherwise, I would peg this as an above average ESB.
