3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Poured a nice deep prangish copper color with good carbonation leaving a nice white cap and some lacing on the glass even after it sat for five minutes.
S: Light orange zest, grapefruit and a light bouquet fo flowers.
T: Most excellent. A blend of citrus and floral notes with a rather biscuity note to it as well. A minimal booze presence and lots of good clean, defined tasting notes made this a treat to drink
M: Medium body, Harmon keeps their beers balanced and this is an example of balanced IPA. Rather clean finish and not overly oily but Cascades tend to have lower Alphas so it helped this beer.
O: Darn good and one of the best in the One Hop series thus far
