3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
10/30/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. Mostly clear amber pour with a big khaki head that laces a ton. Mild hop aroma, dank, mild citrus, plenty of caramel, and even some biscuity chocolate aspect. Mild bitterness, some floral and piney hop character, but not much. Plenty of caramel and biscuit. Too many specialty malts. Meh.

Draft smapling. Pours a darker amber with off white head. Smell is dank florally and caramel malts. Taste is big maltiness, with orange, grapefruit, some pine. A bit too malt forward to be in my personal wheelhouse for an IPA, but still enjoyable.
