3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark orange like color with a good thick head that sticks around. Aroma is resin, pine, grass, somewhat sweet fruit note, a caramel richness. Taste is strong bitter up front, hops, resin, and pine, with a smooth malt body with fruit and caramel notes, finishing with a very pungent pine and citrus bite at the end. Average palatability, a bit thick almost, syrupy. Overall still a great beer, strong IPA.
