look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance-
What an IIPA should look like. Strong amber hue, with a plentiful thick head.

Smell-
A symphony of competing hop flavors, fruits, pines, bitters, and a sweet malt backbone.

Taste-
The hop flavor goes in a rainbow of sweet to bitter, and then the malt caramel sweetness rounds the rollercoaster to an end.

Mouthfeel-
Thick and oily, but doesn't linger longer than it should. Carbonation can dissipate quickly.

Overall-
This is definitely a thinking beer. A bomb of flavor. Grab some while it is available, wait until it comes back when you run out.

Serving type: on-tap
