look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Not typically an IPA fan but this one is fantastic. Citrusy aroma, the scent of the hops dances off the pour. Mild head that recedes shortly after pour. Once the foam fades though, you can definitely smell the alcohol. Almost to the extent of getting a quick whiff of a shot poured nearby. Somewhat fruity taste, slight warmth in the malt, followed by the mild hoppy finish. A little bitter on the aftertaste but not nearly overwhelming. The higher ABV is notable but not overpowering. Overall great balance of warmth, sweetness, and bitterness.

Serving type: bottle
