3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from GBBF 2015 and drunk at home. Big toffee piney resiny hoppy aroma. More toffee than hop though. Not horrible or terrible, just more a toffee dipa than a hoppy dipa. Toffee up front but I do like the hops on the finish, some bitterness. I rather liked it. Yes a bit sweet up front but the hops on the finish are tasty.
