3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Hop Leaf. Actually, it all makes sense now. I had the Double CT a while back and didn’t understand the character. Not that I do now, but this was actually a very heavy bodied IPA, contrary to the description. Cloudy darkish gold pour. Tons of hops in the nose, citrus and caramel. Thick gooey body with a nice smooth bitterness. Pretty nice and solid, though not in my top ten.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma not all that strong: citrus, spicy, pine hops. Flavor has some grapefruit citrus and spice, but the malt flavor comes through stronger than expected. Decent bitterness. Nothing bad about it, but bitterness and hop flavors could be kicked up a notch.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Poured cloudy orangish gold in color with a medium sized beige head which leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of nice piney hops with a note of grass. Tastes of piney hops, medium sweetness throughout, caramel and grapefruit. The hop taste lingers in my mouth for some time. A solid IPA.

Hop aromas like crazy. Bracing woody bitterness. Slick malty backbone to balance. Like a hundred other really good IPAs, but that’s a good thing!

On draft at Dark Horse. Pours a copper body with an off white head. Loads of hops in here almost comes off metallic. Not a huge fan of this one.

Very nice IPA. Like the title states, it has less malty body than most so its very crisp clean and (hops). color was good. aroma was good. A good IPA!
