Enjoyed from the bottle into a small plastic glass during a recent tasting of double IPAs.
Pours a dull, coppery orange, slightly cloudy, with a half-finger head of off-white. It quickly recedes to a very filmy top layer and ring, leaving a tiny bit of spotty lace.
The nose exhibits Earthy hoppiness, honey, apricots, grass and cheerios. Very English IPA-like.
Again with the earthiness. The flavor is filled with Orange peel, roses and some woody character. A bitter bite strikes at finish, long after swallow like a quick smack to the face. The finish is dry finish but has no snap!
Medium-light prickly carbonation amidst a smooth medium-light body. The alcohol isn't too noticeable; maybe a bit of heat on the tongue. A lazily dry finish muddles the experience.
471 is bitter enough for a DIPA, but it's just not flavorful enough.
