4.97/5 rDev +22.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Poured from a 32 oz. "Big Z" growler into a pint glass.
Appearance: Amber/golden with a 1 finger off-white head
Smell: Unbelievable!! Lots of fruit smells including pineapple, various citrus and maybe mango. Hoppy smells came thorugh almost as strong and made for a powerful yet perfect aroma.
Taste: Bitter hop taste in the beginning followed by a combination of fruits, pineapple taking the lead. Nice combination. Finish was crisp and smooth refreshing; "classic IPA" taste at the end.
Overall: A great IPA that I will make my standard until a better comes along. And at a nice strong 7% a well-rounded beer.
Serving type: growler
