3.36/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

a: super clear staw colored with some dark orange notes. head is solid, frothy & white

s: smells better than i was expecting. mango, passionfruit, pineapple - pineapple is dominant. a faint caramel-syrup presence in here as well

t: flavor is a bit of a let down from the aroma. the flavor kind of punches you with bitterness, but not from any of the tropical fruits i was hoping for. i can't even really put my finger on something to associate with the bitterness besides it being bitter. there is that light caramel malt in here as well, but its overshadowed

m: light mouthfeel, well carbonated

o: aroma and mouthfeel are good but flavor is way too one-dimensional in its bitterness. no depth in here…maybe i have a bad keg or something? based on what i have in front of me, you're much better off going with another option

Had a pint of this in LAX while waiting for a flight. Pours a 1" head. Nice lacing throughout session. Slight hop grapefruit aroma. Nice balance to this beer. Malt backbone is there and not overwhelmed by hops and bitterness. Good body and mouthfeel as well. Bitterness on the palate after. Overall good IPA.

A: light golden, little head, not much carbonation

S: dank ness, a very little tropical fruit, a little fresh cut grass

T: honestly not much taste when having it in draft. A little hop bitterness, fairly smooth

M: not much carbonation

O: honestly don't know anything about golden road but not impressed with this IPA. Hopefully this was a fluke, I was not impressed
