3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light caramel, citrus, and a touch of fruit. It pours a transparent amber with a one finger orange-tinted off-white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some thin soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light caramel and fruit. The finish has light-moderate citrus hops/grapefruit and a touch of pine, It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, there’s a little too much caramel for my IPA preferences.
