3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden.
A - Pours yellow with a nice one finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace down the sides of the glass.
S - Smells of fresh cut citric fruit, pine resin, doughy pale malt and a dash of sweetness. A bit slow to develop but pretty nice once it does.
T - Starts off with some mildly toasted light grain quickly giving way to hints of pine resin, citric fruit zest and some light sweetness. Finish is pretty clean with some light bitterness, not lingering for very long.
M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. Light, hoppy feel makes it very easy to consume.
O - Another solid IPA. It has a good amount of flavor packed into a small package, while not destroying the palate like some of their others are known to do. Almost like a bigger version of All Day IPA.
