3.65/5 rDev -11%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12oz bottle poured into a tulip, watching Top Gear series 10 episode 1.
A: Pours out clear, bright and golden orange and topped with a rather thin, but substantial white head.
S: Sort of let down, maybe this has been sitting around for longer than I thought but the signs proclaimed it was new, but for all the hops this is supposed to have I am just getting a whiffs of faint citrus and apricot and a rather grainy maltiness.
T/MF: Incredibly bitter on the tongue and does a great job stripping the enamel off your teeth but the taste leaves something left to be desired. Taste gets a bit better than the aroma with stronger hints of apricot
D: Good, an interesting diversion but don't think it holds a candle to Two Hearted which stands as my favorite IPA at the moment.
