3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Regional Food and Drink, DC tap ($6.50): Pours a pretty light color for an IPA and has a white head. Aroma is of piny and citrus hops. To my utmost surprise, the taste was exactly the same, which means the beer was quite bitter and left a substantial aftertaste. This was in some ways a one dimensional beer, but still had very good hop flavors and a nice feeling body. With the substantial aftertaste, I don’t know if this is a beer that makes you crave another.
