4.15/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Had a long day at work, went hunting and missed a nice 6 point
whitetail time to stop at the pub. I saw this mystical pyramid tap stated HOPTICAL ILLUSION. I love my IPA my day/night just got better.
A: orangey brown in color. Head disipates to pencil thin. Lacing is loght but sticky.
S: For an IPA not a big blast of aroma you would expect. Very mild with notes of floral and seet hops
T: The flavor is the best part. Hoppy and mellow with hints of citrus and a nice honey end note.
M: A great smack in the mouth with a dry bitter tastey bite.
O: A nice IPA up to most standards if the aromas where tighter I would give it a higher score.

Serving type: on-tap
