3.95/5 rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Fairly agressive pour yielded a moderate 2 finger head that dwindled down rather quickly. Great lacing.
Smell: Definate hops comming through. this is a good combination of a winter/ipa style beer. Its got more balls than the regualar SN IPA, and its also go some different aromas. I get some citrus from the hops, a sticky sugary aroma too. Some malt comming through and a little bit of grapfruit.
Taste: This is similar to the IPA. Where the SN IPA flourishes with its pinpoint flavors, this beer fails. Its a little confused, but in a good way. I get some dark malty flavors and some light citrusy flavors. Big grapefruit juice component on the front end with sweet sticky on the back end.
Mouthfeel: Good feel, its got some nice bubbles. carbonated well for the style, nice rounded feel after swallowing.
Drinkability: Nice beer. Its got some great flavors packed in there. Its abv is pretty high for a session beer but i can see where a lot of people would want to put a few of these puppies away.
Serving type: bottle
