3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Agressively poured this bottle of beer and still only a slight dense smooth head which only lasted a bit but left a film for most of the rest of the beer. A dark amber in color
smells like you’d expect, piney hops and cittrus with a bit of spice which I assume was from the yeast.
Tastes a lot like it smells but a bit subdued. Heavier on the pine and lighter on the citrus than I expected. Still a bit of additional spice as well.
Very smooth but seemed to lack Carbonation. Not flat just flatter than usual. i did not mind this so much as I love naturally carbonated cask ale, and that was what the mouthfeel was liike.
I could easily drink a couple of these but generally I always find IPAs to be less drinkable as they overpower my taste buds a bit.
