1635th Review on BA
Bottle to Pint

Thanks to my co-worker Kathleen for this one.

App- Along the lines of a very dark DIPA, with a little bit of brown mixed in. Head was huge and left a whole dollop of foam as a puck as the liquid slid underneath it. It wouldve rated higher except for the overcarbonation.

Smell- Pretty one dimensional with some thicker malts and maybe a touch of a citrus but hard to pinpoint which one. The aromatics dont remain very long either..

Taste- This was more along the lines of a small amber which I am not a fan of anymore. Small malts with a pungent orangey flavor.

Mouth- A medium bodied beer with a big medium carbonation level. Pretty thick malts remain on this one and a touch of a creme from the head on it as it slides.

Drink- Again, maybe Alts are for me, but regardless I was happy to try something new from a new brewery in MI and have a friend bring me a new tick.
