4.68/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A: vigorous pour into a snifter yields a half inch head that quickly recedes to a lacing, dull copper with a white head
S: glorious hops! grapefruit, pine, citrus zest, and pineapple (which I have never really noticed before in an IPA), a hint of honey
T: more of the same but a little less exciting, but more of malty background, the honey is also a bit more noticeable, nice dry bite on the finish
M: the carbonation helps it bite, but it's not enough to keep it from going down silky smooth
D: it seems like most beers with 10% ABV ought to be considered "sippers"...but not so much in this case...
Serving type: bottle
