Bottle pour (Līgo Ziema 2014, Riga)
"Triple IPA"? Sorry, guys, I have to break it to you, your penises really are just a bit too short, and there’s nothing that you can brew that will change that, so stop trying to compensate. Mid gold. Sweet hoppy mess. Unbalanced. Classic American WTF.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep golden pour with a fast fading, thin white head. The aroma is pretty light - a bit of citrusy hoppiness and a bit of tropical fruit. Assertive bitterness wrapped in a malty sweet shell. The hops are fairly faded in this bottle (sadness) but there is a fairly bright piney character. The alcohol is pretty well hidden and they’ve done a nice job at keeping the malt sweetness down. Has a lingering herbal/grassy component. Damn - I wish I had a fresh bottle.
