Hybrid on tap from notes and bottle split btw 2 low balls collaboration review with Carol.
A- Golden cloudy with low carbonation.
S- Hops forward with apple, pear and citrus overtones. Sweet.
T- Very sweet, hops follow nose but not as much hop bite as is expected from the nose. Almost too sweet and not bitter enough to be a pale.
M- medium heavy bodied, almost syrupy, yet very sweet. Thick.
O- Very much so too sweet for my palate as I like my IPA's well balanced and drier. My tap review came from a shit hole that still had hopslam on tap 3 weeks after it hit the market in Minnesota (Casper's in Eagan, MN) gottah love it. It comes across as a little too syrupy from the bottle and lingers too long which can be good or bad. All in all a great ale but Surly Abrasive wins. Cheers.
Serving type: on-tap
