3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pine and hints of yeast in the aroma. The appearance is gold-orange with a billowing head and some cloudy turbidity. The flavor is of grapefruit with an edge to it that is earthy. Sort of a mix of the hoppiness of a AIPA and the maltiness of an EIPA. Pretty good, doesn’t fall into the traps that many EIPA-leaning IPAs do.
