4/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A: Orangy-amber-red color in the light. A nice rocky off-white head appears in the amount of almost three fingers on a fairly easy pour. Lacing very present early on in the glass.
S: Can't smell much at the moment due to some congestion, but I can pick up a little bit of citrus and maybe pine.
T: An excellent presentation of citrus grapefruit and orange rind and pine flavors blending very well. Sizeable bitterness permeates. Malt body adds little balance - this seems to be about the hops. Gets surprisingly boozy when warmed up.
M: Higher level of carbonation. Slightly oily feel. Good IPA body overall. A little too warming on the alcohol as it starts to gain in temperature.
O: An excellent and well-priced IPA if you are looking for hops in the cooler months.
Serving type: bottle
