3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Farmhouse sampler. Amber / copper color with strong head retention. Aroma is mild grapefruit, peach and caramel malts.
This brew is balanced pretty well. Caramel malt and hints of yeast help provide balance for the grapefruit and piny hops. The first IPA in this sample pack with a decent medium body. The bitterness gives a drying texture with a lingering pine over the tongue. Nice drink.
