3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft from the source. Orange copper type color, thin head. Aroma is a solid amount of citrus hops and some ale yeast. Dry hopped citrus. The hops are integrated well in the brew, bright citrus/ tropical fruit flavors. Light amounts of pine resin in the backend.
The brew is balanced pretty well with enough biscuit / pale malts. Bitterness lingers for a good amount after the sip. Overall this brewery does IPA’s well. This is a nice brew without question. However I prefer their Conehead much more. Still a nice show.
