3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange amber with no head. Nose is citrus, dank, resinous, and light braised lemon peels. Tastes of resins, grass, citrus, dank, more dank and more resinous tar. Medium body. If images with some malt and mild sweetness. Ok beer but lacks any outstanding quality. a touch muddled and hope are lacking brilliance. Iíve had this before and itís normally pretty closely underwhelming.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Earthy and floral aromas are combined with suggestions of citrus and spice. A thin white head floats atop a slightly cloudy amber pour providing moderate lacing as the glass is emptied. The overall taste is bitter. Somewhat malty initially, followed by some floral notes. A bread/grain flavor is also present. The pallet ends with a strong bitter finish lingering into a long bitter aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel. Overall, a nice crisp, refreshingly bitter IPA. Surely Frank Zappa would approve!
