Intro: A 330ml bottle, with a best before date of 21st September 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark copper colour with quite a lot of very small suspended particles, a two finger beige head that had good retention and left behind lots of nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Caramel maltiness, mango, pine, grapefruit zest and orange rind.
Taste: Sweet, caramel malt, resinous pine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel and brown sugar.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not bad, but it’s not exactly what I want my DIPA’s to be like. Approaching like a Barleywine and on the verge of being too sweet in my opinion. Once is enough for me.
