Amber color with beige head. Aroma is mainly malty with biscuit notes but there are also some nice earthy hops present. Taste follows, malty at first but with a good dose of hops in the background, earthy and fruity. Nice caramel flavors with bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation, really easy to drink. Overall it's a more old school IPA but a quite good one.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

The colour is amber-copper, the liquid got some chill-haze. The two finger head is compact and off-white. It sinks slowly leaving some lacing.

The smell is smooth and semi-sweet. Hoppy notes of grape fruits and lemon peels. Fruity bitterness and some caramel/lactose sweetness.

The taste is bitter and hoppy with wooden fruity flavours. Some lactose and dough. Tart bitterness and quite a lot of alcohol (it feels more like an 8-9% beer). Medium body. Some salt in the aftertaste as well as smooth bitterness, thick sweetness, tart fruits and banana peels. The finish is a bit harsh but apart from that quite smooth.

The carbonation is smooth, the small bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

A smooth AIPA with some harsh bitterness.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A hazy, dark amber beer with a two finger high beige, head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Dried fruit, malt, orange marmelade, bisquit, herbs, caramel, citrus, resin and spice.
Taste: Grapefruit, ripe fruit, caramel malt, pine, resin, almond, hazelnut, a lot of hops and bitterness and also a little hint of butter.
Body: Full body. Light carbonated. Great texture. Thick oily taste. Soft and refreshing.

This is a great, "grown up" IPA with a full taste. I just love the story on the bottle!
ABV 6.4% Right between the bank interest rate - 0.5% when you deposit and 10% when you have to make a loan...
