DrSilverworm (5932) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Taste from a 750ml bottle. Hazy golden orange color. Good thin white head. Decent splotches of lace. Was skeptical at first as to how this would hold up, being a "2013 reserve" IPA... But the first sniff is reassuring. Tons of good Nelson Sauvin aromas in the nose. Tons of good floral, tropical fruit, citrus aromas. Light spicy hop. Fantastic, complex hop aroma to this. Light caramel malt. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter, kind of creamy carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Great single hop IPA! Not as assertive and bitter as a lot of American IPAs, very different... But has an awesome, complex aroma to it and a very nice long finish. I bet this stuff is ridiculously good on tap fresh at the source... As I continue with it, though, the sweetness a bit more prominent. Still love that big aroma, though.
