3.83/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a bottle on a hazy spring night into a fluted glass...
Appeared - an enticing shae of amber with a slightly off-white 1/2" head, which diminished mostly. The glass into which it poured was only a 10oz. so I didn't get to see the huge particulates floating about until the second pour. Funny little things, ain't they?
Smelled - lightly malty for an IPA, and had a faint hint of straw and strong floral hop nose to it. Really, quite nice.
Tasted - on style, and the mostly important thing was that the malt nose that existed, was not backed up on the palate to smooth the hops. I love bitter, but there was something a bit off here to rate it above average on taste. I did, however, detect a faint hint of apple in the taste, something I didn't pick up on in the aroma.
Mothfeel - it was a little drier than i prefer, but still adequate, the soft carbonation was pleasingly subtle as well.
Drinkability - as NeroPhiddled put it, it's wonderful for a late spring or summer night. It is actually wuite refreshing, and not cumbersome at all.
I recommend a try, and will likely pick it up again.
