4.55/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
Appearance: deep golden color, good head retension, and a moderate amount of carbonation.
Smell: immediate strong sense of hops and pine.
Taste: the taste seemed to improve as I drank the beer, but the hop flavor was certainly very noticeable. However, this was not truly a detriment to overall taste.
Mouthfeel: one of the first things I noticed about the mouthfeel was the smooth initial taste and the complexity of flavor that helped improve on some of the extreme presence of hops.
Drinkability: as delicious as this beer was, drinking several would probably getting tiresome as the hop flavor was, in my opinion, a little over the top. that being said, I strongly recommend it as one of the best IPA's I've had.
Serving type: bottle
