4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
16oz can and growler both poured a hazy orange with a small white head. Heavy aromatics of hops with citrus aromas of mango and passion-fruit. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated and does even more damage than the 6.8%abv would suggest. Acquired taste as it’s heavily bitter, but like heady topper is a well liked and sought after IPA. This has more fruity flavors like the mango and passion-fruit but is mostly quite bitter with a dry finish. Worth the hype if you like the style I suppose, enjoyed.
