3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy peach-colored pour with a mid-sized, white head. Decent retention. The aroma consists of stone fruits and resin. Medium to full-bodied with pillow-soft carbonation. This baby is bursting at-the-seams with generic, rindy bitterness. Bitter for the sake of being bitter. No true lupulin flavor. Just bitter. Did I mention “bitter?” Lengthy, crisp, medium-bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of otakuden!

Pour is clear golden with a thick white frothy head. Nose is tropical fruits with some grassy hops and malty sweetness. Strong pine bitterness with fruity esthers in the mouth. Tastes almost more than 7 ABV. Strong malt backbone with caramel notes without being too sweet. Great IPA with a good balance between fruity hops and malty sweetness!

Pours bright gold with white head and tons of lacing...I’ll need to scrub the glass to clean it. Aroma of apples, citrus, and moderate pale malts. Taste is the same with some melon and a robust malty backbone. Very nice.
