4.4/5 rDev +5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Wow, there's some great lacing here, and the head retention is excellent.
Smell: Grass, fruit, caramel--hops and malt for sure in the smell. I'm not smelling the spices that I expected to pick up on
Taste: There's the typical IPA flavors of pine and grapefruit, but there are other fruit flavors here as well. Along for the ride is distinct roasted malts that make this a not-so-traditional IPA. There's a lot going on, and I can't put my finger on all of it, but I like it.
Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel, carbonation on the lower side but it has some crispness.
Overall: This is one of the best winter beers I have found, and at $8.99/six pack it's quite reasonably priced. There's a lot of flavor and enough to talk about to please just about any beer drinker.
Serving type: bottle
