look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.
A: Clear, medium amber color with a reddish tint. The head consists of one finger of custard-colored foam. Moderate lacing remains on the glass.
S: Fairly dark and syrupy, with toffee, pine foliage, apple cider, and orange citrus.
T: Begins off-dry, acidic, vinous early. Crystal malt stands out but hop flavors are muted, tasting of weak pine. Earthy tea emerges in the middle. The finish has an abundance of fruity esters and significant astringency, but is only mildly bitter.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly sticky on the palate, with low carbonation.
D: Despite relatively low abv for the style, some unappealing qualities limit drinkability. This beer struggles with flavor appeal, being at times off-putting and at best unremarkable. Still, it does not seem entirely out of style if compared to English-style IPAs.
