4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle sample poured by Glenn at the brewery - thanks Glenn!
Amber/orange color with a large white head that settles quickly to tiny bubbles with great lacing.
Aroma is very subtle, mainly just light malts and yeast, not much hops evident.
Bitterness and hops come through in he mouth, nice malt, well-balanced.
Definitely a nice double IPA or barleywine, even without the oak.
