3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour on this is an orange-ish color with a big white head and some sticky lacing.
S: The nose starts out with a sharp citrus note of lemon zest and grapefruit. Beyond the citrus, there is a somewhat mild pine and a nice bit of floral character. It’s rounded out with just a little bit malt.
T: Things aren’t too different on the palate. Opens up with some bread and citrus along a decent pine note. There is a mild to moderate bitterness as well as a nice fruitiness from the hops, particularly grapefruit and mild pineapple.
M: The body and carbonation both sit at medium.
O: Wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into with this one, but it was a pretty nice IPA.
