Hazy orange brown pour, grassy, floral, slightly piney aroma, solid carbonation, alcohol well hidden for the ABV, decent beer, but was hoping for something a bit heavier on the hops

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy and murky dirty beige color ale with a medium foamy head with limited retention and some light lacing. Aroma of earthy hops with light citrus notes are dominant though feels a bit flat. Taste is also dominated by tired earthy hops with limited floral or bitter characteristics. Body is full with medium carbonation. Too bad the brewer is ending out of IIPA across the pond as even fresh ones sometimes don’t travel all that well.
