3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear orange pour with a soapy white head. Nose is pretty similar to the base IPA. Lots of citrus and sweet fruit aromas, floral hops, and a bit of sweet malt. The flavor, however, is overwhelmed by the habanero peppers. Intense spiciness that lingers on the tongue. Good citrus and fruit notes, some mild malt sweetness, and a ton of pepper flavor. Nice flavor, but the heat makes it tough to drink more than a few ounces.
