3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of citrus, and perhaps floral, hop. Amber color with an off-white head that laced a bit. Starts with medium body, mild carbonation, and floral hop to die for. The finish is nicely bitter. Forgot to notice the malt, but on reflection it was there. The effect is to make the mouth want to stand up and dance. It is drinkable liquid hop. More so than some so-called DIPAs. As the label says, refreshingly bitter.
