3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bottleworks. Had high expectations for this. Nose was rather subtle. Some floral and citrus notes. Light sweet malt backing. Pours golden orange, thin head, light lace. The flavor is also a little muted with citrus and floral hops, some light sweet malt. Finish is rather blah and does not live up to any of their other IPA’s.
