Bottle into pint glass
A – Cut short my pour to accommodate the 4 finger off-white coarse head, very good retention, beer is a slightly hazy light amber, scattered broken lacing (better lacing as I drank the glass), moderate carbonation 4
S – Florals & grasses with mild citrus/caramel notes backdrop, overall this is a good yet restrained nose… I was not expecting that 4
T – Starts with a nice mild honey sweetness as the bitterness grows to a caramel/pine/lemon hop, the nice balance that I believe the honey is providing ties the whole beer together so well, not the typical IIPA experience and I will certainly be seeking fresh Hopslam for comparison 4.5
M – Moderate body, juicy with a thicker smoothness, mild to moderate carbonation 4.5
O – A quality and very well balanced IIPA, high ABV is well hidden and good drinkability 4.5
