3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single bottle from Lemon Tree. Big spongy head at pour. Smell is big on hops, but more balanced than the Sam’s Rebel IPA I had before. This one is a bit more citrus and apricot, with pine needles along the way. Taste bring in the same hop impressions as I had on the nose. Almost tongue-curlingly bitter, with toasty malt fighting to provide balance. Too much hop to let any alcohol notes get in.Despite all that, it drinks pretty easily, leaving a bigger wallop of hops as an after-taste.
