1/2 growler filled about 4 days ago at Whole Foods in NYC.
A - Poured a yellow orange gold with a thin shiny bubbly head that dissipated rather quickly. Lacing was really slippery, but left subtle hints of its presence on the side of the glass.
S - Hops up front but not overbearingly so. Touch of lemon and orange as well. A bit citric and a tad funky.
T - Very hoppy and bitter. The hops are way more upfront in the flavor. This one seems to be all hops. Even a bit overly hoppy for an IPA. I'd prefer a bit more balance and taming back the hops.
M - Kind of watery. Finishes off pretty bitter, but not dry.
D - This is one for the hop-heads...which I am not. Don't mind a hoppy beer every now and then, but not my thing. I don't mind finishing off the growler, but to me, nothing really great about this beer to make me seek it out. So many IPAs are just hops explosions and this is just like that for me. Probably a great beer for some and certainly worth a try.
Serving type: growler
