2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light and pale yellow with medium head. Like many hell’s, a muted nose with faint acetone and earthy notes. Hoppy and fresh upon arrival moving into suttle bitterness with a caramel horizon. Doesn’t quite mold but not bad. Not to long either. Too much feel in the mouth however.
