Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of doughy bread that crests to a bite of peppery, herbal hops and orange peel. Hints of toffee and tropical fruit balance the finish. Its base is bready and a touch earthy with a taste of leather.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth with a medium body and moderate carbonation. The finish is somewhat astringent.

Overall

Its bitterness is bracing at first but as the beer warms, the malt asserts itself, and a nice balance is achieved. Its palate is appropriate for an English IPA and it tastes wonderful. High marks around. If you’re traveling to Malta, San Blas needs to be on your list.
