4.21/5 rDev +6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
appearance: a burnt orange with nice carbonation and a thin white head. good lacing as well.
smell: classic IPA smell. citrus, grapefruit, and hopps. nothing special, but still nice.
taste: wayyy different than i expected from the nose. I was just expecting another bitter hop bomb like many others, but there is a caramel sweetness to it that balances so perfectly with the hopps. this is brilliantly done. some bready notes, still some grapefruit, citrus, that caramel that I just spoke of, and malt.
mouthfeel: medium bodied with good carbonation.
overall: i rated this 4.25 because of how much the taste surprised me after the "uniform IPA" appearance and smell. The taste was just fantastic. Must get.
Serving type: bottle
