Murky, dark orange hue.

Huge, white, foamy head; strong lacing throughout.

Smells strongly of malts with a whiff o' hops.

Chewy mouthfeel, almost like a barleywine.

The malty sweetness up front in the taste also reminds me of barleywine; the 10 hop varieties present hardly get past the malt. Which is OK; this is hardly a run-of-the-mill IPA. Perhaps it's a bit old and the hops have faded? Touch o' bitterness on the back end. Pretty drinkable for being so chewy, but ultimately not great.

A: Poured amber to red in colour (quite beautiful really) with a relatively dense 1/2-1" head which maintained throughout the duration of drinking it.

N: Fruity and floral hoppiness that wasn't super complex, but still pretty interesting. The nose sets you up to expect some decent hops without being ridiculous like some of the NA IPAs out there right now.

T: Bright floral/citrus flavours come through right away with a pretty intense lingering bitterness from the hops, but nothing too crazy since the noticeable maltiness comes through by the end.

M: Medium-heavy bodied (not surprising considering the style and the ABV); it coats the mouth in a pretty nice way.

O: I was really pleased with this and am happy to have bought a bottle. If you're bored with domestic/North American IPAs, give this a shot as it definitely gives them a run for their money.

(An 11..2oz bottle poured into a pint glass, bottle date-stamped on the cap: 24/05/12)
