3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 From a three part tasting at Churchkey (Peeper, Corruption, Double Jack). Of the three this was my least favored - a matter of my taste not beer quality. It was presented as an "American" IPA. By comparison, it was light on the citrus and floral notes, favoring an assertive, resinous bitter with a slightly malty center. A deeper brownish-gold. Nice beer, just not what I was looking for that night.
Re-rating - upgraded it relative to other IPA’s I’ve been tasting.
