2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A wet hop IPA. Hazy dull amber. Rich head. Overripe fruit aroma. Slashing harsh bitterness scores the tongue. Sun mentioned white pepper notes and I’d agree with that.

Draft @ brewpub. Golden color with nice lacing. Aroma of thin-skinned fruit, loquat family. Thin. Grassy and spicy. Tastes too much like white pepper for my taste. Not bad, though not compelling.
