look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
On tap at Rosewood Grill, Hudson, OH. Served in a Shaker Pint Glass.
Appearance: Slightly hazy copper. Plenty of thick sheets of lacing and lots of persistent strands. Thin foam across the top (off white, slightly orangish) that lasted the whole way down the glass.
Smell: Herbal, slightly cheesy smell, odd, but this went away as it warmed up and the beer approaches room temp. At that point, the smell moves over to floral and citrus.
Taste: Very hoppy through and through. Bitter up front taste, moving into buttery caramel malt sweetness middle, and then more of a bitter finish. Bitterness had aspects of pine and grapefruit.
Mouthfeel: Nicely thick, good carbonation to counter it. Hop oils sticking to the teeth.
Overall / Drinkability: A good AIPA, but not a great one. The aroma makes wonder if this one had been in the keg a bit too long (it had been awhile since they changed out the keg). By itself nice, but not wow. Went well with food (walleye) and okay drinkability, but without food, I think I would have stopped at one.
Serving type: on-tap
