3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours transparent golden orange with a big white head. Nose is big grapefruit, pine cone, light notes of honey and caramel. The taste is sweet, not the bitterness I was expecting from a west coast IPA. Just not much to it. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy, the body is medium and the finish is long.
