4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at UCBC Wolpertinger 2013 - A real winner at the fest here. Pours cloudy reddish orange with an off white-head. The aroma has pine, funk, green onion. and grapefruit. While the hops are up front there is a nice balance with the rich malt. It has a medium / full body with some graininess and mild carbonation. The flavor starts with grapefruit, earthy spice, pine and is balanced with semi-sweet toasty malt. The finis is a nice mix of hoppy resin and maltiness. Great IPA.
