3.9/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a bottle.
The color is beautiful, a bold orange color with a half inch head.
The smell is very subtle, which I think reflects a lot about the taste.
The taste is quite interesting for an IPA. The bitterness bite, is upfront and then fades quickly. Usually with IPAs, that bites lingers for a bit while it goes down, but not this one. It's immediately bitter and then dissipates.
Mouthfeel is decent, not the smoothest, but nice.
Drinkability is good, I could knock back quite a lot of these, but you're ok because of the 5.9%
Overall- would buy again, not my favorite IPA by any stretch of the imagination, but a very good one.
