3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650mL bottle, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is on the maltier side for a IIPA, with syrupy caramel malts, resinous hops, fresh red fruits, and some citrus fruits. Flavour is extremely fruity and malt-heavy as well, with under-ripe berries, syrupy caramel malts, and then some citrus and resinous hops fight their way to the front. Something doesn’t mesh so well here - the under-ripe berries are quite pronounced and the malts are quite syrupy. The hops aren’t that far forward - perhaps not enough were used to balance the malt? Anywho, it’s decent, but quite flawed. Good local attempt at a IIPA, but needs refinement.
