3.53/5 rDev +0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Strawberry blonde with just a ribbon of white froth + a few trailers of lace.
Overripe orange, flowers, cantaloupe, and cedar oil on the nose.
Lemon curd on saltines then tangelo, aspirin, nectar, evergreen and pompelo hops.
Citrus rind end and drying lemon twist + starfruit finish.
Medium, oily, sulfuric, some cling.
They're vague, but hops are "a blend of Cascade, Centennial, Galaxy, Citra, Pacific Jade and Wakatu. But we might vary occasionally."
Some prominent hops, but big to the point of being underattenuated (minimal hiss + fizz bolsters that notion.) Also has a wet grassy nose + malt syrup tang I associate with bad homebrew. Wakatu and Pac Jade could be pine and pepper, adding up to a pretty lean profile, but I don't think that's what's going on here. The aroma hops don't pop w/o carb, and so lay uncomfortably need to some scratchy IBUs.
And how does any IPA at this strength have a 2 year expiry date?
Good idea, poorly executed.
