3.88/5 rDev -7.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: hazed orange with a bit of particulate that can be seen. head is a bit disappointing, off-white half inch sized head dies quickly without very good retention. and it aint the glass. some lacing.
S: hints of bubble gum mix with pineapple and toasted malts. rich in munich perhaps? something bready and rich, but not until the hops make their presence felt. bits of pine work into the hop medley, but this thing is mostly tropical.
T: tropical fruit. mangos and watermelon. very similar to the nose, after the hop attack the palate moves into a slightly chewy toasted malt flavor. however, bitterness does remain throughout. lingering bitterness and dry finish.
M: pretty moderate carbonation on a medium bodied brew.
D: pretty light drinking AIPA considering the 7%ABV nametag. well balanced while accenting tropical american hops. not my all time favorite, but certainly in the conversation of great AIPA's.
Serving type: bottle
