3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Beautiful golden color with moderate head that quickly dissipated. Nice hoppy aroma. Flavor is reminiscent of an IPA. Moderate hops and sharp bitterness. Last bit spicy and peppery. The body is light as expected, but also buoyant and lively. This was good, clean, and crisp.
