4.1/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Had in tap at pizza by stout

A-very deep amber with almost a slight red hue. Head is about 2 finger and nice and fluffy leaving a sticky lace down the side.

S-very piney hops come out in the forefront nice bitter and earthy. Very classic ipa. Grapefruit and bitter citrus come out with a deep smell.

T-again very classic ipa flavors nice bitter hops and earthy undertones. Citrus is very present in the middle and finish and leaves that wonderful bitterness on the palate. Hops are done so well it's astounding there is a subtle sweetness that balances the hops. It's really amazing as you continue to drink it.

M&D- mouth is a little thin but the carbonation is right on. It cones across as very normal at first but as u drink it you start to realize the very subtle complexities that come out. Very smooth and easy to drink for me but I'm not sure it would be good for a starter to the style. This brewery is becoming on of my favorites and I'm very glad we have access to it now

Serving type: on-tap
