2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Wrecking Bar. Wow...apparently nobody paid attention to the "pale" aspect as this is a pretty deep amber colored beer. Okay... It smells alright at least as it has some good fruity hop character and a fair bit of sticky, bitter grapefruit. However, there is the unmistakable goopy, sweet, sticky, caramel malts that I really don’t like in an IPA. Scroll past.

caramel and crystal sweetness is taking over as the citrus naturally begins to fade, creamyness grows to be a sweet and creamy citrus malt beverage,
