3.48/5 rDev -6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours very dark in color but not opaque when held to the light. Head is a little bit lighter than tan but nonetheless off-white which soon receeds into a small cap of foam that barely clings to the glass
S - Nice resiny pine nose. A bit of chocolate character comes into play also. The beer comes across as a little on the malty side
T - The creamy/roasty malts blend nicely with the pine hop flavors. Finishes with a light bitterness that leaves be suprised but is also dry and crisp.
M - Light to Medium bodied with light carbonation and again a nice drying effect.
O - Not my favorite IBA so far but still good. I prefer this style to have loud hop presence with quite and gentle chocolate flavors. It just seemed a little to balanced for my liking.
