Swans Extra IPA
Ratebeer 3.51 80st percentile
Beer Advocate A-
The beer in question is the closest one. Meterman seems very happy with his choice of the Swan's Scotch Ale.
The nose is quite pleasant with both floral and citrus hops. A hop assertive first sip lets you know that this IPA means business. After the hop bite is done, a wash of caramel barely sneaks in before the hops are back at it again. The hop finish is slightly citrus, but not grapefruit, more of a Seville orange.
The bitterness lingers on for ages, imparting flavours floral hops that are not very astringent.

This was a great PNW IPA and it surely will make a regular appearance in the ARC beer fridge.
Ingame Enhancement +1
No gaming this afternoon; just Meterman and I draining some glasses at the best brewpub in Victoria.
What can I say, Swan's brews good beers.
