3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Scott - thanks! Clear, caramel brown pour with a spotty white head. Aroma is light earthy hops with bitterness and minimal pine over slightly sweet malt. Taste is light hop bitterness with pine and a fairly clean, lightly sweet malt backbone presenting caramel before more hop bitterness into the finish. I’ve certainly had more pungent, bitter, and hoppier fresh hop IPAs but this beer drinks with a nice, easy balance between the hops and sweet malt. Pretty good.

This had some age but the piney hop aroma was still good. Average weight with a drop down in the carbonation. Color was a metallic gold. Strong harshness that was evenly balanced by caramel malts.
