4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at Hop Devil, 12/3/11, Rating # 1992, unfortunately, this one goes out to the last Redskins Super Bowl Victory, something that doesn’t seem too likely to happen again anytime soon. I’ll drink this one to Darrell Green, the Posse, the Hogs, the National Defense, and all the rest of the team that made that my favorite NFL Season.
Aroma: The nose is citrus, pine/resin and floral hops mostly
Appearance: The pour is a clear orange color with a white head and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is mid plus sweet, citrus and mid-heavy bitterness, that is fairly resiny
Palate: The body is smooth and creamy with a fairly soft carbonation, and a slightly sticky feel
This was on draft without a Batch # associated with it, but the tap looked exactly like the picture associated with this beer, so I’ll assume this is the one I was drinking. Personally, I really enjoyed this one. It is a good IPA with a nice mouthfeel that works well throughout. Nicely done here by HeBrew.
