Colour and sight: Deep dark red colour, with a light pink, compact and lacing head.
Scent: Soft fruity aroma, with hints of almond and mildly sour cherries.
Flavour: Sweet and fruity, with a nice balance between sweet and sour. An excellent dessert beer.
With blackberries added to the brewkettle towards the end of the boil and more fresh berries added in the cellar there is a wonderful, sharp tartness to this IPA. The upfront bitterness is countered by the slight sweetness from the berries.
