3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a very clear amber gold with visibile rising bubbles in the body. A pin stripe of white goes around the top.
Aroma: A bouquet of piney, grassy and perfume hop oil off the bat. Sweet malt and fruitiness.
Taste: A sandwich of agressive resinous hops, sweet and biscuity malt and fruit cocktail in the middle, with a long sturdy bitter finish. Maybe some rye malt as well?
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, medium peppery carbonation.
Overall: Solid and beautifully bitter. Not my kind of IPA, but still satisfying as it is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks very gross with lots of floaters. But a good head. Aroma is nice hop so is the taste. Palate is spot on for abv with a light roughness from the hops. Overall a decent IPA if they could get some filtering going on.
