4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL growler. Very hazy orange body. Light wisps on the surface. Clings a little bit.
Buckets of hops. Excellent citrus hop smell but it still manages to have a grainy malt presence. Sweet hoppy nectar.
Juicy citrus hop flavor. Orange and grapefruit flavors. Nice sweet flavor behind it. Very monotonic, but deliciously so. Grainy malt and the sweetness drops off.
Medium body. Medium carbonation. Clean and just a little heavy.
One hop makes it a bit one-note, but the flavor is excellent. Definitely a top IPA.
