3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured an orange amber with a soapy off white head and minimal carbonation. Head leaves bits of lace. Smells of Citrus and pine with a whiff of caramel. Taste has a nice malt that leans toward a caramel sweetness. Hop level seems pretty light for this style. Lemon and grapefruit are the dominant hops flavors. Finishes with a mild bitterness

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet, hoppy and very clean, this is an everyday ipa for me. Memorable because of a little mishap in the alcohol volume here, this was sold in the normal shops and they aren’t supposed to sell over 4,7% stuff. No wonder this was more delicious than the run of the mill ordinary shop IPAs.
