3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Pours a golden color with a nice white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is lots of citrus and hops you’d expect from an IPA, or toned down a bit like a APA, but there’s also a distinct maltiness in the aroma. Flavor is hop forward but an undoubted huge maltiness, sort of a malt backbone but it’s so bready and prominent that it’s awesome. A crispness to it that even in a blind taste test would indicate to you this isn’t an IPA. My first really good pale lager.
