4.23/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45°F
Appearance: Pours an amber copper color with a one finger frothy off white head.
Smell: Earthy pine hops, oranges; Bold aromas
Taste: Resiny pine hops with some tropical notes at the back end
Mouthfeel: Full bodied for an IPA; Moderate to heavy bitterness that lingers on the palate.
Overall: As others have mentioned, this reminds me of Torpedo, but even more on the bold, resiny pine, floral side. This may not be as highly respected as Sculpin, but it's a great AIPA in its own right, focusing on different aspects. I will be picking this up the next time I see it. Recommended
Serving type: bottle
