3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Piney, citrus. Good assertive hop aroma. Decidedly east coast in flavor, somehow. Some grapefruit. Good malt backbone, toast, light caramel, pretzel. Hazy amber / orange color, lots of sediment floating inside. Foamy off-white head, with great retention and good lace. Lighter carbonation, very dry texture. Soft overall. Earthy hops. Orange, stronger bitter taste, buzzes on the tongue. Aggressive, but I think I like that. Very interesting, enjoyable IPA to sip, big flavor for the ABV.

Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, caramel, light lemon peel, and floral notes. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a one finger white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with citrus, fruit, and caramel, The finish has mild citrus hops, grass, and a touch of floral notes. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat mouthfeel. Overall, too much caramel and not enough hops for my IPA preferences.
