3.8/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

on tap at small bar into a 10oz? pint glass (an Iron Fist glass at their Small Bar event)

A - Very nice looking with thick off white head and deep red to amber liquid.

S - Whoa there are some dry hops/hop back stuff happening here. Not terribly sweet but nice (smells like the 3 C's to me) and a little malt backbone too.

T - Great beer from a brewery that I wasn't sure had it in them. How they came out with a IIPA before even a pale ale is strange to me but yeah this is great. Nice balance of hops to malt to booze with plenty of hops for the hophead without being too bitter.

M - Actually pretty good for the style. Sometimes they get thin and boozy but this stayed nice and robust throughout.

D - While you wouldn't want 10 of them in a row this is a nice little beer...on tap. Not sure how it would be in the bottle where dry hopping etc aren't as prevalent.

Serving type: on-tap
