3.63/5 rDev -12.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours an amber hue with a thick head. Heavy lacing.
Smell: First, second and third whiffs are all hops. Still, it's a mostly light and floral scent. A little citrus-y.
Taste: As the scent indicates, this is hoppy but not overwhelmingly so. Upfront taste is almost sweet. Goes down a little rough, and the bitterness only grows after you swallow it.
Mouthfeel: Kind of watery, and a little thinner than the smell or taste would indicate.
Drinkability: Given the alcohol, this is pretty easy to drink. Still, the lingering bitterness can become a little overwhelming after a few.
This beer looks and smells great, but the lingering aftertaste made finishing the growler a bit of a chore.
Serving type: growler
