3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass displaying a hazed, orangy amber color, with thick, creamy, off white/light tan head foam, and curtainy coating to the lacing. The aroma was grapefruit, orange peel, a bit of sweetness, some dank grain & grassiness, and a touch of toastiness & caramel at the back. The taste was immediately astringent, a little watery, and lighter bodied than I would’ve expected, considering the hefty nose. Included was some tartness, and a hop bitterness that was very earthy, rindy, dry, and lingering. Only a decent amount of creaminess to the malt saved the taste from being abrasive, and out of control. Aggressive for a big IPA, but not for a 5% Pale, imo. Dry finishing, and a little beyond crisp.
