2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blah. A sub par IPA. Aroma was decent. Grass and hints of grapefruit. Pour was a burnt orange with a thin off white ring on top. Taste was not that good. There’s a strong malt backbone but a big hoppy aftertaste. Heavy on the citrus..strong lemon and grapefruit on the back of the mouth.A little one dimensional and not very full. Nice carbonation.
