3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a light orange-amber in color with a medium off-white head which faded and produce only a small amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma was heavy with floral hops and little else. Flavor matched the aroma profile... not strongly flavor or as bitter as I expected. Just an average IPA... a bit disappointing given John’s talent for hoppy beers.
