look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance is bright and inviting.

Smells of citrus fruits, hops, and bubblegum.

Taste is very citrusy and light for an 8% beer. Hop flavor a bit dull.

Mouthfeel is a mouthful of tropical fruit.

Overall this beer is a very good balance of fruit and hops to make this beer worth purchasing again.

Pours orange with some amber hues and a bit of haze. Head is about one finger and has decent retention.

Smell is great, lots of citrus, some mango a good piney backbone. Malt smells somewhat sweet through the citrus tang.

Taste follows the nose with citrus flavors laced over a moderate piney bitterness. Caramel malt is semi sweet and well balanced with the bitterness.

Mouthfeel is good. Medium bodied, mild to moderate carbonation. Perfect for an ipa.

Overall well balanced tasty ipa.

A - Poured a burnt, chill hazed orange into a pint glass with an inch and a half of off-white head. Lots of lacing left on the glass while you drink the beer.

S - Big, imperial IPA nose of resinous pine, followed by some citrus and a hint of starfruit. The nose is bringing tropical fruit notes to my attention along with a bit of pine and resin. If there's malt in the nose I missed it.

T - Pine, resin, blood orange, and other citrus dominate the tongue. Lots of

M - Appropriate carbonation for a medium bodied beer. Lots of hop oil on the tongue.

O - Another great beer from Solemn Oath. Excellent example of an Imperial IPA.

Serving type: growler
