3.78/5  rDev -6.9%

A- Pours a dark translucent gold with a billowing three finger head that leaves some sheets of lacing behind.

S- Floral hops with honey, toasted malt, pine and some citrus zest.

T- Subtle pine and biscuit malt followed by caramel sweetness, orange and some floral hops. A bit sweeter than the aroma suggests.

M- Light to medium  carbonation and a smooth body that finishes dry and  bitter.

O- A well balanced ipa, with no big faults, but not too memorable. Worth trying but prefer the more tropical presence of sculpin than this.
