3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber to garnet pour with a 2-3 finger creamy beige head that has great retention and leaves good lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, wet cereal, earthy grain, then floral, spicy, citrus and fresh pine hops, light bready and tree fruit notes. Flavor is dark caramel, fruity yeast, an odd hint of banana here and there, earthy grain, light toffee, then sweet and bitter citrus, earthy floral, pine, cooked guava and spicy hops. Medium body, dry, slightly chewy entry, light to medium carbonation, light boozy warmth, dry, slightly astringent finish. Good stuff for sure, I don’t know why this isn’t classed as an IPA, but it’s good.
