Intro: A 330ml bottle, looks like it had a best before date on the bottle at one time, although now its definitely not legible. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: A very hazy darkish orange colour with a less than one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly, but left some curtain lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple, apricot juice, mango, orange pulp, pine and lime zest.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, lactose, pineapple, some hard to describe taste… I want to say creamed peach maybe, creamy vanilla, and lightly herbal.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Taste was a little unusual (but not terrible) to begin with, but I think it grew on me towards the end. It’s quite sweet (but perhaps not overly so) for an IPA, but is lacking a bit of bitterness to balance.
