3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy taupe amber with a small head. I always have a problem rating Marley’s aroma because I tend to finish while they are still too cold. Flavor was grapefruit hoppy with a not too harsh lingering bitterness. A little maltiness comes through. This last batch was notated as a belgian IPA with an ABV of 6.7. Enjoyable.
Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a minimal off-white head that almost completely faded immediately Pretty nice nose, slight sweetness, a little Belgian yeast influence, light floral hops The flavor is balanced toward the maltiness, the hops are fairly light and floral, emerging a little bit more on the lingering bitter finish. It’s fairly reminiscent of Flying Dog’s Raging Bitch, but not quite as refined. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation. Not bad, but it’s hardly a standout
