1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cask pint at the prewpub. Hazy amber. Initial soft flowery "Lucky Charms" hop aroma. Sweet and thick, tastes of creosote. No hop flavor and only the faintest of residual bitterness... by comparison, I recently had a Pacifico which was far more "bitter". Greasy palate. Overly syrupy and one dimensional.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On nitro at brewpub.
Aroma is fairly hop forward with a blend of English and american hops. Light caramel character. Fairly dank and earthy with wood notes but also a lot of citrus and light tropical fruit.
Pours a cloudy orange with a moderately thick white head with good retention and lacing.
Flavor is slightly sweet and malty with caramel notes and some cracker and light honey but the hops help dry out the finish. High bitterness with moderately high hop flavor. Hops are fairly citrus and tropical fruit forward but with a balanced pine resin and woodsy character in the background.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a fairly enjoyable IPA that plays the line between West Coast IPA and English IPA. A little malty for my preferences, but I like the hop profile. I am tired of IPAs that are all tropical fruit without any dank or woodsy notes and this one does a good job of combining them.
