4.53/5 rDev +8.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: 2004, Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Color is golden amber with an off white head. It has a nice fluggy head with great retention and lacing on the side of the glass as the beer is consumed.
Smell: Sweet hoppy floral nose. I had no idea this was supposed to be an IPA, but as soon as I smell it, it was clear that this was an IPA in very true California style.
Taste: Very sweet with a clean hoppy flavor up front. Notes of cinnamon, clove, fruity esters, and a hop bitterness lingering at the end.
Mouthfeel: It's medium bodied and smooth on the palate without any uncomfortable stickiness.
Drinkability: Easily one of the best Christmas releases I've had. I will gladly enjoy this again.
Serving type: bottle
