4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ap - A hazy deep orange that looks like honey. Three-finger pillowy head with good retention and lacing. Noticed a lot of unexpected unfiltered sediment in the last pour. I am guessing it is bottle conditioned.
Ar - smells like a orange juice. Malty aroma balances the citrus hops. A touch of yeast is present as well.
T - Very smooth. Its a honey biscuit with a grapefruit juice chaser. The three flavors are very well balanced for the style. I don’t think I have had an IPA with this high of a yeast profile. But it is pleasant and not overdone. A long finish give you your money’s worth with every sip.
P - Mouthfeel is what it should be for the style. Creamy and a touch sticky. Medium to full bodied and almost creamy.
O - Balance gives this beer high drinkability. My second Mad River brew. So far I am impressed.
