4.24/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: Extremely clear, dark copper color. Pours with about one half to one fingers worth of white head, made up of small bubbles. The head dissipates rather quickly, leaving a partial layer of micro bubbles.
S: Healthy malts, but even from the beginning you get some floral/herby hops.
T: As it smells; big thick malt start that transitions to herbal hops. The malt start is not overly sweet like some IPAs, nor is the hop finish as assaulting. Pretty medium of the road here in terms of IPAs. Does an excellent job of covering the 7.3% abv without tasting boozy.
M: Medium to medium+ body; a little chewier and slower than other IPAs. Carbonation is medium to medium-; I'd prefer a little more.
O: A very good IPA. I had this on tap during a happy hour earlier in the week and it was excellent. I thus bought a 4-pack to more critically taste and review, and I'm a little disappointed with the bottle. It's still a very good IPA, but the tap pour was outstanding.
