355 ml can, from the Norwegian importer. ABV is 7,0%. Golden colour, huge white head. Aroma of piney and citrussy American hops, some spicy hints. Medium sweet and dull flavour, not as crisp as I expected it. Bordering on "bland", the hops are not nearly as dominant as expected.

De color dorado, con cuerpo y carbonatación media. Aroma cítrico y herbáceo. En boca se siente cítrica y dulce pero perfectamente equilibrada.

One notch better than Fathom IPA. Also good approachable everyday IPA.
Love the brewer. Nicely made - this creamy IPL at 7% ABV. Would love to blind test in a series of hoppy IPLs as it's always a crisp on the hop theme. Will try again if I can find it
a) Pours bright golden clear body with... 1 finger white head with ample density, last, and lace as with all brews from BP.
s) Solid aroma of light malt first then piney hops, lemon, citrus, then a long, malty, dry bread shop aroma.
t) Very grounded in the malt and bread with layers of tropical fruit: Lemon marmalade, citrus, piney hops, all balanced and drinkable.
f) Well-carbonated sporting crisp, mid weight, good feel, but a creamy finish.
o) Clearly a power IPL. And I'm coming back for more, could be a regular. Drinkable, balanced, good with food and friends.

Deep sea diving is kind of what this beer will remind me of, but not really. This is just a pale IPA or pale lager that has the distinction on the flavor profile being a bit bitter and like a fancier rolling rock.

Pours to a thin head that laces when coaxed. Clear golden. Aroma is floral hops. Flavor is spicy hops and clean nondescript malt sugar. MF is light med. It's alright.
