Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a orange/amber color with a one finger white head. The head faded fast to give a decent level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a sweet and citrus hop aroma. The citrus is mainly grapefruit in nature with the sweet being of a caramel aroma. Mixed with these are other hop aromas of a earthy and piney nature.
Taste – The taste begins with some caramel sweetness and a good dose of bread and a citrus hop flavor. As the taste moves on the bready flavor grows stronger and is joined by more hops of a earthy and pine nature. Toward the end the earthy flavors overwhelm the citrus. With this larger earthy taste comes a nice oaky flavor which in the end creates a woody taste that is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is slightly higher than average in thickness with a carbonation level that is rather moderate. It is rather fitting for the brew’s oaky and hoppy flavors; allowing all the tastes to sit on the tongue and be experienced, but yet giving just enough carbonation to give an invigorating mouthfeel.
Overall – A tasty more earthy and woody flavored IPA. A nice one to try.
Serving type: on-tap
