4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft - Could be a D-IPA just as well. Clear sparkling orange, thick white creamy head. Hopped up nose of earth, pine, and evergreen, with a soft toffeeish undertone. Well bittered flavor up front that becomes a touch boozey half way though. It receives a light sweet nutty maltiness that rounds it out nicely. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. One of my favorites from brewer Joe K. Locals should get out to try it soon. It goes very quickly...
