3.75/5 rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Look - red/coppery in color, maybe a little dark and murky, with about two fingers' worth of frothy light khaki-colored foam that dissipates somewhat slowly.
Smell - fairly hoppy, but at the same time with a pretty strong bite of barley.
Taste and Mouthfeel - hops are pretty prevalent, but the taste is masked by a sweetness to where I'm not able to tell that it's Cascade hops being used. I do feel a little bit of the chocolaty feel in the middle and toward the finish, where there's a little more bitterness felt again from the hops. Texture is pretty well-balanced, leaning just slightly more toward the watery side.
Overall - pretty interesting brew...both good-tasting and interesting to think about.
