brokensail (11294) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
A: The pour is primarily orange with some notes of gold and a thin white head. S: A good citrus and floral hop aromas to the nose give it the IPA character. Some light Belgian yeast esters provide a fruitiness, along with some actual yeast itself. T: The flavor is quite harsh and almost solventy. Grassy hop flavor along with quite a bit of resinous pine flavor. Very, very bitter, far too much for a Belgian style IPA. There’s a bit of a melon rind flavor, too. M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation. D: The nose was quite inviting, but the flavor fell way short. Not something I’d really be interested in drinking again.
