4.3/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Clear amber pour. Voluminous, creamy, eggshell-white head hangs in there like meringue on a lemon pie. Thick, creamy spider-web lace.
Smell: Holy hops! Olfactory assault of floral and citrus hops, hop oils, piney, toasty malt in the background with a decent whiff of alcohol and breadiness.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied caramel malt followed by a sharp whack of piney/pitchy hops, clean crisp carbonation at the top, bitter/citrus hops dry to the bone leaving a flowery and oily/acidic hop aftertaste. Better balance than implied by the nose.
Drinkability: A superbly balanced IPA. I'll be looking for this again and again.
Serving type: bottle
