3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazed gold with a white head. Pine resin, BO / must, cheese rind, pepper / spice and such in the nose. Simcoe comes to mind given the mild shallot and garlic notes. Musty BO odors may be from yeast rather than hops. Lightly sweet, highly bitter, medium acid. Malt is soft, carbonation fine giving it a creamy texture. Typical resinous American IPA.

MaxxDaddy garbage shared at RBWG, Le Grande Tastinge. Pours a clear, bright gold color without much head. Notes of citrus and tropical fruits, sweet and cereal malts, herbs, and florals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bright, clean mouthfeel. Nice, easy-drinking IPA that seems like less than 7.3%.
