3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Decent, but not great. Light bodied with some bitterness in the finish. Overall not much to it. Fairly drinkable, but lacking ingredients.
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy deep gold color. Nicely balanced pine and citrus/tropical fruit hop aroma. Gets just a touch grassy as well. Big pale malt flavor with present sweetness. Finishes a little sweeter and less hoppy than the first time I had it. This batch might have finished a little higher. Still a pretty solid IPA.
