3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2014 Draught at 1516. Lovely, misty full amber body. Small thick white head. Hoppy, piney, slightly yeasty aroma. Quality I2PA. Very strong taste dominated entirely by the bitterness, dry, ashy, slightly piney. Agrumes show up as well a little. The malty background is slightly too subdued and not as full as it should be (though I kinda prefer that to a sticky bittersweet mess). Not the best one I’ve had but the ’hype’ is well deserved - or was initially when there were fewer "alternatives". 3.7 first time, 3.4-3.5 now I guess.

100ml sample from keg at brewpub
Pours hazy dark amber with the herbal noble hop aroma one associates with European hops. Medium body and carbonation and decent bitterness with plenty of piney resin but with malt to balance. An enjoyable IPA I’d have happily drunk again.
