On tap at Capone's during Philly Beer Week...
A - Honey colored with an orange hue... Thin white head fades to leave a delicate but inviting lace... Slight amount of carbonation... Good stickiness...
S - A sublte mix of hops, yeast, and malt... Sweet citrus...
T - Sweet grapes... Apricot... Malt... Honey... Faint hint of yeast... A very mild mannered hop profile at the end... Substantially sweeter than I had expected...
M - Smooth... Very minimal carbonation on the tongue... Much thinner than expected... Nothing distinctive in terms of mouthfeel...
D - Easy drinking, especially for 8.5% ABV... Given its classification as a Belgian IPA, it's disappointing... The hop profile was so subdued, that I would have never guessed this was a Belgian IPA if I didn't no otherwise... I've never been a huge fan of Allagash brews, but I keep trying new ones an always seem to walkaway unimpressed...
Serving type: on-tap
