Ska Decadent IPA

Not bottle conditioned
Ska Decadent IPA [baron rating 4/5] - 10% copper ale,syrupy resinous savoury smell,syrupy resin caramel taste,long fruity resinous finish
To be honest, I was rather disapointed with this beer, I'd heard such great things from @villabone and @sourcedelipaul that when I ordered this beer I was very excited. I waited for the right time where I could sit, think, and appreciate the beer but as soon as I opened it, I knew it was past it's best. The 'fresh hop' aspect was missing and in it's place was the syrupy resin that you get from the amount of malt required to make a beer of this strength. It was nice but nothing like I expected it to be, and I was quite disappointed. I suppose it's what you get when you buy a bottle of beer that has been shipped halfway round the world and sat for who knows how long in various warehouses along the way. As BB King once 'sang': "The Hop Is Gone"
