3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on tap at Schlafly Bottleworks, a guest tap leftover from the Repeal of Prohibition Festival. Orange amber colour with weak white foam. Intense American hoppy notes with a little English Northern Brewer snuck-in. Aroma was more enjoyable than flavour, which seemed a little coarse, less smooth than some of the other IPAs in a side-by-side trial. Mellow caramelly malts, a little residual sweetness to balance the bitterness, low-medium body

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a somewhat hazy but more of a clear amber body with a one and a half finger white foamy head that rises a bit and falls leaving some sticky lacing in the wake.
The smell had a bitter citrus hops up front but a nice bready/maltiness angles in to also give a bit of a floral/piney-ness as well.
The taste had a sweet yet bitter combination of hops to bready maltiness, also gets a bit orangey, aftertaste is exactly the same, dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium, sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and good for me.
Overall, I’d say this is a pretty good AIPA, just a tad maltier than most AIPA’s but still worthy of another purchase.
