3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 Live rate. 22oz bottle from Cask N’ Flask, San Jose, CA. Pops open with an enticing gust of lychee moving into grapefruit, melon, papaya, blackcurrant, aniseed...even a little wisp of garlic- good fresh hops unencumbered by malt. Brilliant bronze with a loose off white foam. The hop freshness continues on the palate with punishing bitterness; dried flowers, slightly less expressive tropical fruit flavours, peppery spice and pine. Oily nut linger and crumbs of biscuit off the malt- no Crystal malt overdose here. Bitter, bitter hops dominate; fresh-picked and pollen-like on the burp. Better than average WCIPA.
