2.8/5  rDev -22.9%

Being a huge fan of Old Rasputin, I always have high hopes for any offering from North Coast Brewery.
I felt like this one fell a little short of the other great offerings that they have. Don't get me wrong, it's not that this is a bad IPA or anything, it's just not the greatest one that I've ever had.

Hazy, yellowish pour. Slight head with carbonation bubbling through it the whole time.

Any little head that was made through the pour quickly dissapeared into a slight foam layer.

Warming, apple spice flavor pulls through the hops in the first taste, but coming in afterwards is a watery malt dryness that's not very pleasing.

Lace if left on the glass as you go. Decent brew, but I feel that there are other IPAs that offer a better experience.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

This beer has a lot going for it. It has a thick mouthfeel and pleasant honey flavors. It has a very bitter flavor while sipping that lingers as a strong aftertaste. This is something I am not particularly fond of in beer, though it's something that others sometimes look for. I finished drinking the beer I used for this review but I wouldn't buy a 6-pack of it. If you like hoppy IPAs then you might love this beer. It's other flavors are quite nice.
