3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich copper and bronze coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of bright PNW hops with quite a bit of malt, some alcohol and a nice piney scent as well. Medium-bodied; Pungent hop flavour dominates at first with a good balance of rich strong malt. Alcohol shows near the end as well with a definite depth of flavours. Aftertaste shows some rich caramel, a good malt backbone and yes, of course the hops dominate. Overall, a nice beer for sure and more of an East Coast IPA, but a great one to sample, especially in a can and especially in central Austin. I sampled this twelve ounce can at Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar in Austin, Texas on 05-May-2014 for US$4.99.
