Tried at the kings head Stamford. Jet black colour with a thick tan head. Aroma roasted malty and nutty, sweet to finish. Really smooth.
44cl can, BB 15/09/2021, canned 16/03/2021.
Dorée/paille, col épais blanc-cassé crémeux et tenace.
Arôme est bien fruité, tropical, touche de mandarine, pin, zesty fruité en dominance, pas mal d'agrumes fraîches. Parfum assez envoûtant, avec un léger bouquet rappelant la citronnelle voire le dill.
Palais est léger plaisant avec un caractère pin, léger melon et raisin blanc qui revient sur la fin apportant une note de douceur avec un fini plus herbacé en fin de bouche. Fini sur une sécheresse plaisante entre effet boisé/pin (aiguilles et bourgeons) entremêlé avec des notes fruitées douces.
Plaisant, version IPA classique sans l'effet neipa de la levure, ici, pur axé sur les deux houblons.

Fast gone white head over pineapplejuice-like beer. Aromatic, green leaves, fruity esters but also musk, peach drops (sweet). Bit metallic in the mouth, very dry. Fruity, but extremely restrained in that direction. Vegetable flavours too, bitterish but more than just that. Old straw. Medium to well bodied, good carbonation, very hopoilslick. Weird beer, difficult to judge. Thanks to Stef!
Small, evanishing whitish head over hazy yellow beer. Ureum, asafoetida, hot olive oil, hot orangepeel, and mineral. Nose from another universum. Fruitesters, especially orange & orangepeel. Wry bitter, bit cheesy hops. Good carbonation, very slick, oily. Medium bodied at least. Not bad!
