Served in a Tulip glass from the bottle here at Cervecería Esparte un Conil, Spain.

Appearance: lousy amber orange color with a white head rising pretty thick at almost one a nudge above one finger's length off the body.

Smell: Malt and hints of citrus skin. Has a hint basil which is obvious on the label which might come off as an uncomforting scent.

Taste: Bitter basil which is touch overpowering. Citrus with hints of yellow grapefruit.

Mouth: Sticky brew, feels good sometimes then feels eh. Dry with a medium body.

Overall: Good brew which could use a little work. Definitely good for a starter IPA, despite the label starting DIPA.
