Pretty standard IPA. Balanced bitterness but not that much hop flavours.

Bottle from rlgk, thanks Ronny!

Clear golden-amber color, with a decent white head.

Wheat, straw, grassy hops and musty malts. Taste is defined by sweet malts, with slick yeast, pinched by citrus hoppy notes, resulting in a short bitterness, coated up by a bready malt aftertaste. Dry, smooth mouthfeel, in which hops go well along with toffeish malts, without letting the bitterness getting out of hand. Carbonation is lively, adds copper metallic hints to the refreshing aftertaste.

Pours a clear copper colour with a light tan head leaving plenty spotty lace. Aroma okay with some citrus and malt sweetness, though it seems somewhat stale smelling. Taste has little bitterness, mostly sweet bread malts and caramel. Somewhat nutty too. Somewhat of a creamy, slick mouthfeel, medium in body, lower carbonation.

Overall, kinda sux. A new arrival to my store, but it just comes off as stale. Last minute toss into the basket and I regret it.
