Piney plus aroma. Not sure what the floral is.Hazy golden amber color with persistent lacing. Grapefruit fibre. Swishing thickens the texture. Very fresh. Bitter, astringent finish. Good IBUs. Puckers the mouth, lingers on the tongue. It’s underrated so far. So I’ll up the average. It’s worthy. And it goes well with salmon!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Mild nose with fruity citrus hops. Clear gold with thick persistent head. Punch of bitterness and grapefruit hops. A long but entirely unpleasant finish. The mild nose masks the strength but a decent IPA.
