3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light orange/copper with a transient seemingly white head. Moderate aroma of hop and caramel. Med body or nearly. Initial flavor is pretty citrusly hoppy, and there’s pine. It has all the right ingredients for a West Coast IPA, but maybe not quite enough hop for it, and far from enough hop for a NW IPA. That said it’s pretty hoppy. It’s a good IPA, and rings all the right notes, but it just won’t stand up to Knee Deep and similar. Certainly drinkable.
