3.6/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a can into a Harpoon IPA pint glass.

Looks a deep, clear amber with gorgeous head and lacing. As the head settles, it leaves a trail down the side of the glass.

Lots of resinous and earthy hop aromas, good caramel malt sweetness in the nose. Smells really tasty.

I was surprisingly let down by the taste. It smells like it would be rich, earthy, resinous, but also malty. Instead I found it to be relatively watery and lackluster. There are those hop notes in there but they taste watered down and weak. There's no malt backbone to speak of. It's a decent beer but definitely not as good as it seems like it should be.

Serving type: can
