Excited to try this newer release from one of the best hop forward beer breweries around. A fantastic beer!
A: Poured deep orange/amber with a great billowy head
S: Smells earthy and piney with a hint of caramel malts and sweetness. Like rolling around in a forest. With bread dough.
T: Lots of balance as it warms up. Hop profile on the front end is more earth, pine, and dankness than citrus. Great malt balance with sweet caramel to balance out the floral bitterness. Aftertaste finishes with some lingering grapefruit.
M: Drinkable with food or without, with a smooth character that doesn't show the 8+ % ABV
O: A great balanced DIPA, other reviewers have said they can taste the "English-ness" of it but I think it's simply more balanced if anything and doesn't punch you in the face with puckering salted lemon flavors like some one dimensional DIPA's out there. This is more well-rounded with plenty of dank American hops.
Serving type: on-tap
