3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD.
Mildly hazy, amber copper with a fine, off-white head and excellent lacing.
Very mild aroma of light fruit, caramel, pine and citrus.
Taste of pine, citrus, caramel, bread and spice. Well balanced and robust, but never over the top.
Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation.
A solid, if not exceptional IPA. Personally, I want more aroma and intensity in my IPA. But, other than the mild aroma, this pretty much nails the middle of the IPA style.
