3.48/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
12oz bottle into standard pint.
A: deep reddish gold with 3 fingers of beautiful rocky pale orange head. Decent lacing and very slow to recede. Looks great.
S: Big hops on the nose, biter citrus like a grapefruit or pomello, and a tad heavy smelling. Touch of rye on the nose but not much.
T: Opens with a touch of medium malt like a red and fades into citrusy hops. Hop bitterness comes in last and leaves a grapefruit-like bitterness on the back of the tongue or like biting into the pith of an orange that persists for a long time after.. A little alcohol warmth but not much.
M: Medium bodied with light carbonation. Drinks alright but not as easy as some beers.
O: Not a bad brew, considering I don't really like IPA style and I have come back to this a second time says something at least.
