3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma was interesting, but a bit weak. Hints of several things, but I would have liked a stronger citrus aroma. Nice, pillowy head with cloudy orange-copper body. Taste was slightly above-average -- certainly not bad at all, but nothing extraordinary. There was a lot going on with the palate. Lots of life with this and a bit of sting (in a very good way), but fell short of perfection because it seemed watery too. I would love to have more of this beer, but I would choose several other IPAs over this one. Still, I’m glad I had it.
Darker than many IPA’s, caramel color. Nice strong citrus and pine hits the nose as I pour from bottle to glass. Oily look to it. with very little head. Bitterness hits the tongue first, with some sweet citrus right after...then back to bitter on the the tail end. Thicker feel in the mouth, as expected from the oily appearance. This is better than I expected, just a tad to much bitter in the aftertaste to really ascend. iceman15658 (142) - Acme, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2017
