2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On hand at Wynkoop’s United Tastes of Belgium 2012. Clear copper with a thick white head. Too-faint aroma of some herbal/dusty bitterness. Taste was a little bland and boring for an IPA just kinda hoppy with grassy and grapefruit tones, with a faint and effervescent dusty yeast and a boring body right up until the hoppy finish.
