4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 For the most part I think this is a great beer. The aroma is a very pleasant floral and earthy while the flavor tended more towards peppery than the soft floral notes their website alleges. I was glad for this. The mouthfeel seemed a bit thinner than I’d like and there was a distinct, although minor fruity-sourness to the finish. The joy of Galaxy hops is a bit hidden in the pepper/spice and floral notes of the flavor. Although there is a touch of citrus/orange for contrast, the less common notes of passionfruit were undetectable.

Poured into a snifter, has a nice deep amber color with a good amount of head. Floral hops dominate the scent with notes of lavender and perhaps juniper? You taste the malt immediately then the hops take over, leaving a bitter citra hop finish. I was surprised at the 7% ABV because it’s so smooth. Great brew by Pretty Things. Tastes like a true west coast IPA brewed right here on the east coast. Cheers

Pulita, limpida e con una bella schiuma. Al naso č floreale e agrumata, in bocca ti aspetti una bella dose di amaro che puntualmente arriva. Finale molto persistente.
