2.92/5  rDev -25.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The appearance had a hazy dark golden yellow to orange color with a nice off-white-to white head. There was some light lacing here and there. The smell had some caramel, toffee and light citrus flavorings as it warms it comes across more so as oranges. Eventually, some light mint with an earthy booziness came across. The taste took the previously mentioned flavors and added a gentle rolling sticky pine underneath. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slight sessionability about it. There’s a gentle harshness running about it - I mean its there, its just seems to be dampened a bit probably due to the involvement of the malts in this one. Overall, well, it fits the EIPA for the style, would I have it again? For the price $13 for a corked 22 ouncer? Most likely not.

wat licht in alle opzichten en met een frisdrankachtig licht zuur prikkeltje (wel vrij kleine bubbels) ipv. echte, mooie, lekkere, fijne mousse
verder niet onaardig of fouten
voor een IPA redelijk, bijna pilsachtig, mild in de bitters (hops)
niet slecht, maar ook niet opwindend
goede dorstlesser, is ook geen compliment

Very balanced beer, not too bitter, just enough. Earthy, herbal hops along coconut good sweet malt balance. A good English IPA, nothing fancy just an old style IPA

From Club del Gourmet of Corte Ingles El Duque. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not bad, but traditional english hops arent as tasty nor aromatic as modern ones from usa, new zealand, etc.

Very floral and herbal hops in the nose. Orangey and bright. A hint of diacetyl. A bit grassy. Followed by caramel malt flavors. Bready, somewhat sweet. Fresh biscuits and toast. Complex and inviting.

Pours somewhat hazy orange with an off-white head. Decent retention and lacing.

Fruity orangey hops upfront followed with sweet toasty malts. Lightly caramelized sugars and hearty bread. Apricots and grassy herbs. Firmly bitter, but still quite balanced. Sweet upfront but finishes with a nice crisp dryness. A hint of diacetyl in the finish.

Medium full body with medium low carbonation. Somewhat chewy without feeling heavy or cloying.

Nice balance of English hops and rich malts. Lots going on with a fairly clean finish making it quite quaffable.
