3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the Richmond Gathering 20th! pours a clear copper amber with good tan head. Looks identical amongst all beers. Doughy and caramel and hoppy as hell on the aroma and flavor. It is VERY difficult to discern any noticeable difference. Perhaps this one is just a bit cleaner than the others? I really can’t just tell anything different here. The massive hopping pushes this into the DIPA category and i think the style masks any effects of the different yeasts.
