3.63/5 rDev -11.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Cloudy golden orange with a moderate white head and some lacing left behind.
S: Not much of an aroma: a faint hint of citrus/pine hops and a slightly stronger malt sweetness.
T/M: Much more powerful on the palette than the nose. A quick touch of caramel malt as it touches the tongue, swiftly followed by a wave of bitter hops. Pine and citrus flavors dominate, and it leaves behind a lingering and quite nice hop bitterness. It's not a hop bomb, it's actually quite well-balanced but has a good amount of hoppy flavor.
O: A fine, standard IPA, nothing mind-blowing but a really drinkable and tasty brew. Too bad the aroma doesn't match the taste.
Serving type: bottle
