Howler purchased at Liquor Shed in Casper.

A nice slightly hazy reddish gold with a 1 finger....quickly shrinking head of foam. It leaves some lacing behind.

The smell is mostly of piney hops. Being in the lower spectrum for the style, I was hoping for some kind of sweetish malt presence but I can't seem to get any. I'm now getting a bit of grapefruit; it adds a nice touch to the hops but again, where's the malt?

Taste fits the smell to a t. Almost. I DO get a slight hint of malt sweetness but it doesn't seem consistent on every sip. There now, not there now. Currently, it's there so I'll judge the beer accordingly.

I have no qualms about the mouthfeel. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation.

Overall, it comes across, for me, as an amped up IPA without getting into serious malt territory. Maybe that's a good thing cuz the abv is not very noticeable?

Serving type: growler
