Served on tap in a tulip glass
Appearance – Poured a deep amber color with a medium off-white head. The head faded fast to leave a fair amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma was a good dose of pine and some earthy hops. There was also, mixed with these, some aromas of light citrus hop and small amounts of caramel and biscuit.
Taste – The taste started out on the sweeter and creamier side with some caramel and a light molasses sweetness mixing with a bready base. These however were not alone and there was a nice piney and earthy hop flavor initially present that grew stronger toward the middle of the taste. The pine and earthy flavors reached an apex at the middle of the taste and with the sweeter caramel, began to fade as the taste moved toward the end. While these flavors faded, other flavors of grapefruit hop and a light tropical fruit flavor came to the tongue, which in the end after all were mixed together created a rather tasty and complex aftertaste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body as well as the carbonation level were above average. The creaminess of the body was slightly lost with the extra carbonation and the flavor profile would have likely done better with a slightly lower level of carbonation.
Overall – A nice IPA with a rather complex yet pleasing flavor. Not the best out there but one to try if you get a chance.
Serving type: on-tap
