4/5  rDev -1.5%

Appearance: Dark, cloudy amber with plenty of off-white lacing.

Smell: Clear hoppy aroma - piney and floral.

Taste: Strong hop bitterness up front, then slightly sweet malt, finally a more ashen bitterness that lingers for a few moments after finishing.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and body.

Overall: Good. Like a strong IPA but a bit sweeter. I prefer more malt backbone.
