3.84/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance
Honey/ Amber color with medium lacing
Smell
Smells strong of hops and you can sense the bitterness coming off the beer. Pine as well, a lot of pine, like a forest punched you in the face. A bit flowery and citrusy as well.
Taste
Medium mouthfeel, powerful flavor and bitterness, slightly malty, flowery and grapefruit notes at the finish. Lingers for a long time
Overall
This beer has a lot of character but to me, even though I’m not stranger to the IPA and very bitter beers, this one seems like a little bit of a chore to drink. Maybe I need to re-visit it but when I want a good IPA, others come to mind.
