3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Color was caramel. Lots of head, maybe three or four fingers, mainly because of an awful pour by me. Full of white frothy cloudy lacing. Pretty similar look on the sides (film) compared to the lacing.
Lots of bitter hops in the initial sniff. Citrus hops, but couldn’t put the fruit in it. Some lemon and some tangerine I think.
Tasted of a nice mixture of caramel malts and citrus hops with a bitter alcohol backbone. Seemed to be more caramel than citrus. I’d say lemon for citrus, but not a bad balance.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Long and nice finish.
A pretty good beer overall, but I have to admit I was expecting just a tad bit more. My awful pour in the beginning didn’t help, but still.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Leafy hops with a fantastic citrus twist on the nose. Pours a beautiful light gold with a very thin foam top. Huge bitter hop bite up front, with an incredibly delicious citrus/grapefruit background. Strong, full flavor with a pleasant carbonation and thin, smooth texture. Overall, I am thouroghly impressed with this brew. As far as a spectacular IPA goes, this brew absolutely nails it. Genius hop flavor coushined by a subtle malt background. I love everything about this, A+ rating.
