It's organic
A: Although the carbonation was just gushing as I had barely cracked open the bottle, after the pour, there wasn't much of ahead. very very dark for an IPA, dark ruby brown and fairly cloudy.
S: Far more like a belgian dark ale. both chocolately and dark fruity and sweet. also something strange in the realm of playdoh.
T: Absolutely not an IPA. Very strange. Slightly hoppy, kind of chocolate, weird fruit. I don't know. It tastes like quality ingredients were used, but the recipe itself, very strange.
M: Smooth, a hair thick with a mild tickle.
O: An odd one, that I wouldn't jump on again. Not to say that other people won't find it great.

Amber orange and still, topped with 3 fingers of thick beige head.

Peaches and pine, fruity with tannic tea qualities.

Peaches, pine, dried cayenne pepper, light sweetness.

Medium thick body, very little carbonation.

Found at Central Food Hall in Chiang Mai, drank April 4th, 2016. This is a good representation of an English IPA, and I believe it should be categorized as such. Its similar to Fullers India Pale Ale. Really well done brew once you wrap your head around the style it represents and the fact its from Austria.
