Amber chestnut with a finger of beige.
Lots of orange compote on the nose with some caramel.
Bananas Foster sauce with resin, citrus and a touch of mango.
Nectar and grassy (dry-hopped) finish and numbing linger.
Medium, round, chewy, sticky.

Hops are there, especially the IBUs, and go a bit spearmint on the linger. But its far too dark and sweet to be any kind of IPA; more like a junior barleywine. Careful, your English is showing.

Opened a bottled transported by suitcase from London via Icelandic Air. Seems to have held up well. Poured with ample foam, on the creamy side, burnt caramel color, opaque. Nose is sweet and bready, a bit of orange and mango but not at all citrusy. Mouthfeel a bit disappointing, indecisive really, insipid fizz interferes with a smoother, rounded feel. Taste mostly follows nose, with a solid malt backbone, sticky sweet finish. Pleasant enough but not what I would call an American IPA but more of a West Coast IPA or some of the "English" style IPAs made with English malts. Either way, happy to have a pint of it next time I'm in London.
