3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341mL can, bonus’d generously by cstromberg (thanks a lot, Chris). Pours a cloudy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is full of piney hops and citrus zest, and various tropical fruits (pineapple comes to mind). Flavour is characterized by tropical fruits and citrus zest upfront, before transitioning to fairly bitter piney hops which linger on the palate. Fruity upfront, with dry zestiness later on. Great IPA.
