Pennsylvania

4.03/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle into pint glass.

A: Clear dark gold with a sticky white head. Fades to a film of lace and leaves rings on the sides of the glass.

S: Pine resin, herbal hops, and a faint, underlying toasty malt base.

T/M: Somewhat slick mouthfeel. Aggressive citric bitterness in the finish. Sweetness with slight herbal notes up front. Malt backbone is more present in mouthfeel than in taste but does balance the bitterness in the finish.

D: Quaffable.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A - golden, amber, didn't really produce a head

S - hops, bread, yeast

T - as expected with a started IPA the primary taste is hops, not overwhelming but a good amount, can also taste bread and yeast

M - medium bodied, sweet, crisp

O - good IPA for a standard IPA, nothing crazy here, but a good amount of hops with full flavor

Serving type: can
