Aroma - Floral, not a lot else.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a clear golden amber with a one-finger white foamy head that retained reasonably well and laced OK. Moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of decent floral hops. Taste a bit of malt but predominantly nice moderate hops bitterness. Medium body. Crisp finish. Not as over-hopped as other IPAs but still quite nice.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s quite simple - this beer lacks the complexity of a good IPA. there’s something almost plastic about the aroma, which is mainly malty biscuity-ness with some burnt caramel. There are more hops on the palate and a reasonable amount of malt, but this beer is just a pass when rated against other IPAs.
