3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed at the brewery with Ryan, Kevin and Chris during a dinner stop: Deep golden hue with a fading frothy head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of light grassy and piney hop, grapefruit and apple esters, light pepper and clove, biscuit malt vapour. The taste starts with hop bitterness and citric twang that is fresh and nicely presented. Mild pale and caramel malt background. Finished with a dry spicy profile. The mouth feel is sharp and lively, chalky finish. A solid IPA that really hit the spot after all those big beers at Kuhnhenn.
