2.9/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Thin, lazy white head that clings to the side of the glass tightly.
Noticeable hoppy scent, hardly noticeable malt, slightly astringent.

This beer is too bitter for my tastes. Not well balanced with malt of hops flavor. The hops were used too much to bitter this brew, rather than flavor it. The alcohol is warming and doesn't seem to interfere much. Not a great example of what I think an American IPA should be.

Serving type: bottle
