What about the beer?
Colour is hazy orange with a medium-sized white head. Aroma has pineapple, mango, sweet candy - seducing scent. Taste starts with piny and fruity bitter bite. Spiking pine and bitter grapefruit take over with malty flavour and a tiny bit of alcohol. Towards the end piny bitter grapefruit and boozy sweetish orange tones are in front. Aftertaste has bittersweet citrus followed by lasting sharp piny dryness.
Superb aggressive piny-fruity Imperial IPA. Bitterness, sweetness, dryness. Fruits, pine, malts, booze. All in a crisp and tasty package. Rough but joyful.
Happy and tough. That means we're going back to the end of the 60's, when there was this new rock band from London. The song's lyrics are about the frustration of falling in love and being unable to show it. Not exactly a happy theme, but it belongs to youth and somehow to the feeling of first love. And reminiscing the personal first crushes... Well, let's say it makes me laugh at myself now though there was nothing to laugh at then.
