Brewed this up as a bit of an experiment- taking inspiration from Thomas Vista's recipe. INcredible aroma.Unbelievably- I might lift the bittering hop little if I were to brew again. It's a beet to share with a few mates in a tasting session- as opposed to a session beer. The Hops are huge. The Aroma INCREDIBLE.
