2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft in the taproom. Poured straw to pale gold with a small but dense white head. Aroma and flavor were mildly bitter, some resinous hops, a bit of citrus, moderately malty. Didn’t strike me (or any of the guys with whom I was drinking) as very West Coast. Didn’t have the strong citrus/grapefruit notes and was less bitter than the Cahaba’s regular IPA. My least favorite of their CaHOPba Project beers.
