3.75/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Pale copper in color that shines golden when hit by the light. One-to-two-finger head that recedes slowly. Constant rise of tiny carbonation bubbles. Beautiful wall of fine lacing coats the side of the glass.
S: Dry hop smell fills the nose. Not much else so you know what's coming.
T: Decent balance between the hops and malts. Hops have some pine and citrus characteristics but not very distinctive. Good taste but not great.
M: Great dry finish with some nice carbonation up front. The body to this one is a little on the light side for my tastes however. None of the stickiness I want either.
D: Perfectly acceptable IPA just not very distinctive to me. I wouldn't turn one down, because I love the style, but I wouldn't seek this out either.
Served: in an imperial pint glass.
