3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Two trips to Craftissimo day. Unexpectedly dark pour - dark hazy copper brown with some orange tint. Thick foamy head. Aroma is very malty - almost chocolate - with lots of resin hops. Taste is super malty at first, followed by piney resin hops. Nice bitterness, and very focused in flavor profile - pine! - but a bit too malty to me for an IPA (vs maybe a DIPA with more booziness and hops to balance). Nice though.
