3.55/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A: It pours a light copper with good clarity and a finger of rocky off-white head. The head has good retention and leave some lacing on the glass.
S: A confusion of a medium Old and New World hops aromas that is mostly citrus and earthy with some and floral notes. There is a moderate malt sweetness with some caramel and bready character. It has a light bit of ale esters mixed with a low alcohol aroma.
T: The hops blend is interesting with medium-strong flavors that are again citrusy and earthy with some spice and floral highlights. There is medium caramel and honey malt sweetness against slighty more hops bitterness making for a balanced] that is modestly bitter. There is a light fruitiness from the ale yeast and a light alcohol in the background.
M: A medium bodied beer with a moderate amount of cabonation. There is slight prickle on the palate and a low warmth.
O: If you're a fan of English IPAs you probably be pleased as this is a reserved American IPA that still has brings a good amount of hops just not as much as I'd like for the style. That being said I do like the hops flavor it's just that I want more flavor, bitterness and aroma in my IPA but this could be the basis for an impressive beer.
