Pours clear, amber in color with one third inch head. Taste is pine and grapefruit. Medium bodied and carbonation bitter. Makes for a really good ipa.

A new one from Black's in Kinsale Cork. 500 ml bottle from OBrien's off licence in Naas. Only just in. Sweeter and a little more bitter than their standard IPA. Alcohol well hidden. I really like it.

Look:pale gold generous head
Smell:strong smell of hops and a little malt, very pleasant
Taste: mellow , a little fruity cherry, peach, perhaps a touch over-sweet
Feel: powerful yet subtle
Overall: very enjoyable beer, a little sweet for me, not enough sour hoppy flavours for my taste but others will really savour the sweetness.

Poured a clear amber, single finger tan head with long lasting lacing into a tulip glass. 500ml bottle decent aroma but not as big as I expected having tried some of their other beers, decent hints of malt and hops. Tasted more alcohol than their other KPA or Black IPA beers which is to be expected with the increase in ABV. Taste is very nice, better than the smell, nice balance between the bitter and sweet, a very drinkable IPA!

Bottle 500ml. Was expecting a hop bomb but have to say very disappointed with this. No aroma of hops whatsoever. All malt and bitterness and no balance. Good feel and body. Oily enough but no head or lacing. This could have been so much better but for me not a good beer.
