3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oranges, limes, apricots, and light caramel on the nose. Red-orange hue, with white head, and decent head retention. Good bitterness, and well-balanced and well-supported by the malt backbone. Full-bodied with lively carbonation and a snappy, bitter finish. Maintains the traditional IPA style while incorporating some big hop features.
