3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Pour House. Fresh hoppy nose with a bit of grapefruit but mostly some medium bitterness to it. Good nose. Coppery amber, light haze, with off-white lacing head. Good medium body with smooth carbonation, almost as if on cask. Starts bitter, very bitter, with some caramel malt and just big, big hops. More like an IPA. Finished bitter and dry with chalkiness on the tongue. Some sulfur on the nose, too.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear and orangish red in color. Creamy off white head. Has a floral hop perfumy olfactory. Taste is less than an IPA but surely hoppy. I have tasted a few IPA that were less hoppy than this. Barely any carbonation. Bitter hop notes remain on the palate after the session. Typical hoppy APA style.
