3.45/5 rDev -18.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Bottle: solid brown longneck, with an acceptable non-macro label.
Appearance: golden-orange in colour, with an immense head that drops to a 2-finger creamy head. Again, very impressive.
Aroma: not quite the hop overload of the Imperial IPA. More tropical hops - pineapple, grapefruit and pine.
Taste: unfortunately hasn't offered what the nose promised. Funnily enough, the nose is far stronger than the taste. Still a fair bit of hops, but it is somehow a bit muted, and doesn't sit in the mouth as other AIPAs do.
Aftertaste: definitely more of a citric and pine hops flavour lingering.
Mouth feel: mouth feel is pretty much spot-on. Reasonably thick with limited yet fine carbonation.
Overall: certainly not the best AIPA I have had - too much hop bitterness and not enough discernible flavour. But hey - not bad as either a sipper or a few gulps of ABV wipe-out.
Serving type: bottle
