3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Arrived at the table a slightly darkened gold with a linen white head that leaves a layer of foam with each sip. Light aroma of malt and surprisingly absent of any hops. This is an IPA? The flavor is malt up front followed by a solid dose of hops bitterness. The hops are frankly not all that flavorful, but definitely bitter. The bitterness subsides quickly and does not linger beyond the swallow. Disappointing.
