3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Very pale golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is quite bright and fruity with a nice lemon peel citrus flavour. Soft of soft and a little bit of cascadey citrus hops. As it warms, the hops sort of shift from herbal to citrusy with a nice assertive hoppiness. Bright and zesty with an almost lemon verbena character to the hops. Very bright and zesty with a lot of nice soft hoppiness. The beer is appropriately dry with a bit of tropical pineapple character. Lingering soft bitterness. Itís a decent soft hoppy IPA.
