4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On draft mid out-and-back bike ride at IH Media. Poured a nice crystal amber orange color with steady mellow carbonation bubbles rising. The aroma was yeasty, citrus hops, spices. The flavor was belgian yeast and malts, rye bite, phenolic spicing character, faint fruity esters. This was one of my favorite brews I’ve had at IH so far. Really great combination of rye bite, phenolic yeasty spices, and firm citrus hops. Mouthfeel was full and hearty, very refreshing.
