Review and Tasting

Sampled on 31/07/2016

Appearance

Cloudy, deep amber with thick retentive creamy ivory white head and heavy lacing.

Aroma

Aromatic pine, orange and grapefruit hops.

Taste

Medium-bodied. Pine, citrus and floral hop flavours but mildly bitter with restrained hop resins. Hop flavours layer over an attractive bready malty base.

Aftertaste

Dry and moderately bitter. Toasty bready malt with pine, citrus and floral hops.

Overall

Four different hops contribute to this dark amber IPA’s flavour. The hops are assertive but Darkside is balanced rather than overly hopped with good bready maltiness.
