Anticosmic_IPABrewed for 1349’s appearance at Hellfest, this IPA seems to have more a UK than US orientation. The colour is somewhere between dark red and dark yellow. Pours very little head. The nose is fruity notes, Heavily maltorientated with a delicious taste and small degree of bitterness. More like an English IPA for sure, however a bit shortlasting… Quick flash of hops before the malts take over. Wish it’d lay longer on the tongue. But for a homebrew to be, this is fantastic.
