3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk. Gold colour with small white head. Big hoppy aroma with orange. Follows through to the taste, richly hoppy, bitter, with caramel, malty and grapefruity citrus notes. Decent mouthfeel - semi-syrpy, not hugely carbonated but interesting enough. Very solid beer, nice.

sip slowly, one of the few american brewers that knows how to balance hops with the malt. big body for big hops, anymore hops and it would be another bonehead Imperial IPA. this one has the malt to match it.
one of my 2 favs from SN(South Hemis Harvest the other), that makes it to Texas.
