3.83/5 rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a longneck 12 oz. brown bottle into a standard clear pint glass.
Appearance: Clear deep golden color with a one finger fluffy white head that leaves good lacing.
Smell: Citrus and grassy, with a little musty hemp-like aroma. Interesting.
Taste: This is all about the hops, very fresh and clean tasting pine and hemp-like hops. Has very little pale malt underneath, certainly not enough to balance. But, not overly bitter either. This has an unusual very hoppy taste due to the lack of balance, but I sort of like it. It gives it a more unique hops profile than most American IPA's.
Mouth feel: Very thin and light, with good carbonation. A very crisp feel on the tongue.
Drinkability: I like this one, due to it's unique hops profile and lack of malt balance. It's all about the hops, and sometimes I am in the mood for that. I like this original flavored IPA and would drink it again. Would like to try it on tap some day.
Serving type: bottle
