3.93/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
12oz. poured into tulip
Appearance: Hazy golden orange/yellow with a cloudy one inch head. Good retention and thick ringed lacing down the glass.
Smell: Strong pear, grass/hay, and thick hop aroma. Some sweet malt is lost in there somewhere.
Taste: Citrus fruits with crisp apple and pear followed by bitterness but nothing too crazy. Finish has a yeasty twinge and slight alcohol. I wonder what kind of hops they use in this beer because to me it comes off more like a Belgian IPA than an American IIPA.
Mouthfeel: Nice, not overwhelming.
Drinkability: This is where I think this beer shines. 8.5% ABV isn't that high consider what most other IIPA's weigh in at, and it still has very full flavor.
Overall: The first time I had this I had it directly after having some hopslam. At that point I thought this beer was a poor attempt at a IIPA but now I realize it's good qualities
Serving type: bottle
