4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from a fresh 4pack courtesy of armin, thanks mang! pours a just slightly hazy goldenrod with a nice active white head that leaves a lot of thick lacing and spotting. excellent aroma, slightly more floral than the taste, which has a bit more bitterness come out. which is a good dose mind you. then a very nice transition in to a sweeter malt finish, though still with some lingering soap like bitterness. good stuff, glad i was able to get some so fresh. while not totally insane on the flavor spectrum, it drinks really well and it very enjoyable, a winner of a local iipa for sure.
