3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I had this on cask at the Blind Tiger in NYC. I thought it was very good, exceedingly hoppy, and very crisp.
This beer had a fiarly dull copper gold color, limited head with large bubbles, a very dryly bitter aroma and lots of hop bitterness. I didn’t detect a lot of fruitiness; flavor was quite crisp and good. Mouthfeel was exceedingly smooth.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewery. I love hops, and this didn’t disappoint. Golden, slight head, full of hop and pine aromas. The hop and citrus flavor makes for a very smooth and drinkable, but not overwhelming beer. Extremely well hidden alcohol. And I’m pretty sure they mentioned it as an IIPA at the brewery.
