3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy, dark orange color with a finger length off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Smells of grapefruit, tons of pine, lemon, floral notes, little carmel or toffee. Dry smell. Taste starts with tons of grapefruit and pine, along with some lemon. Then mellows out a tad with a little sweetness and some biscutiness from the malt. However, the finish presents an abrasive bitterness, along with pine, lots more grapefruit, and some lemon and floral as well. Sort of like a blood orange flavor. Maybe a trace of carmel, but very dry finish. Medium bodied, but on the heavier side. Mouthfeel is very nice: creaminess with good carbonation. This IPA will definitely satisfy a "hophead." One of many great offerings from Dark Horse.

Just a good, middle of the road IPA. Some malty sweetness balanced by moderate amounts of hops. Tried it many times, but it works.
