3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle from De Molen Beershop
Pours dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramely malts, toffee, citrus, pine and resin. Taste is grassy, piney, resinous and citrusy with some caramely malts and sweet toffee notes. Finish is lingering bitter, crisp malty, grassy and citrusy with loads of pine and resin. A classic west coast IPA, but doesn’t feel super fresh. Still tasty, though.
