Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 18th October 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a big rather uncontrollable four finger white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Unripe apricot and peach with hints of lime, apple, banana, clove and grains.
Taste: Lightly sweet, green apple, banana, clove, grainy, maybe wheat, grass and a touch floral.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to high prickly carbonation.
Overall: I’m not sure about this one. It doesn’t taste or smell bad, but at the same time, it doesn’t really seem like an IPA.
