3.8/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A damn solid IPA - pours a deep amber orange with very little head out of a 22oz bomber. Smell is very floral, which was pleasantly expected. Tastes of many spices - cloves most prominent. Really well done and definitely not a hop-bomb. Flavor profile changes as you drink it, from spicy to florally to citrus.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with a foamy off-white head on top. Nice head retention, with sheets of lacing down the glass.

S: Some nice pine mixed with a little bit of floral hops. Faint grapefruit and orange rind. A bit of biscuity malt.

T: Nice citrus up front, some apricot and a bit of pineapple mixed with some pine. Definitely flowery, like the name implies.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Bitter finish.

O: Pretty solid IPA from CBC, would expect nothing less.
