4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at PP Carlsbad. Super Hoppy, yet the lower alcohol body holds up to the hops and is surprising low alcohol. The hoppiness of an IPA - without the cloying maltiness. Would you come teach our brewers to make beer like this in TX? Puhleez?
