4.5/5 rDev +8.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Nice golden brown color, voluminous head if you're not careful pouring.
Smell: Very hoppy on the nose. Some spicy, piney, and resinous hops, and some floral/herbal aromas too
Taste: Follows the nose pretty well. There is some real good hop flavor in here, again follows the piney, resinous, spicy hops, along with some citrus as well, but there is some herbal/floral flavors here too, which I think is the freshness of the hops showing through. There is a decent malt backbone to this as well. Semi-dry bitter finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body, full carbonation
Overall: Very good, I feel like this is a classic example of what an American IPA is. I feel like this is as much of a gold standard as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is. I can see why people go nuts over this every year, it is quite the treat.
Serving type: bottle
