3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Rock Bottom, King of Prussia, PA. Amber with a ring of white head; fresh and light aroma - definitely West Coast hops, but not the sort that slap you inthe face with a birch twig; the flavour is crisp and assertive with some sweet grapefruit; and the finish is clean. A rather straightforward version of an American IPA, lacking the power found in many of them - but nevertheless a snip at $2 on a Thursday night!
