3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours crystal clear light orange, lasting medium sized head. Low on the carbonation, I like that. Aroma is tons of grapefruit hops, light sweetness, bready yeast. Taste is moderate fruity hops backed up with some serious lasting bitterness, mild but definitive. Light caramel malt. Alcohol is hid very well for this style and abv. Lower carbonation yields to a smooth, lightly creamy texture. In summary, a very well balanced IIPA with some subtleties that are rare in the style.

Guest tap at Fat Head’s in Portland, RBSG. Medium gold, dense creamy head (looks like a nitro head). Sweetly malty, lightly toasty, with stonefruit hops, a bit of citrus. I don’t mind the maltiness, but it’s too sweet for my liking, even despite the bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml bottle. Deep golden pour, large white head that sticks for a long time. The aroma is caramel nougat with some spices and grapefruit cutting through slightly. Falvor is boozy and sweet, jsut too much malt and not enough hops to balance it, metallic, some bittersweetness. This is the kind of ipa someone picks up then says they hate ipas.
