3.85/5 rDev +4.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12 ounce bottle poured into a 22 oz. TGIF/Applebees/Ruby Tuessday glass.
A big, fat head that tapers down the sides leaving a thick lacing. Golden, slightly hazy color. This looks nice, real nice. Coming back to here afterwards, the lacing lasted the whole drink and continued forming until the bottom was reached. Just upped Appearance from 4 to 4.25.
S--Hoppy up front with some citrus trying to hide in the background. A little piney. There's not an actual sour aroma, but something about it is making me anticipate some sourness in the taste.
T--Not this week's standard Hop bomb. There's actually a bit of maltiness there to balance the hops. Quite uncommon this week. I prefer IPA's this way. There's citrus (lemon, maybe grapefruit??) up front. The anticipated sourness is not there in the taste. There's some hard to identify fruit here as well. Very good, but not what an IPA tastes like currently.
M--There's actually some creaminess here, again, uncommon for today's IPA's. There's a little bit of dryness at the finish, but nothing out of hand
O--Good, damn good. Not what today's IPA's are, but damn good nonetheless. I'd highly recommend it for someone just starting out down the road to today's hop bombs. It will give a good picture of what an IPA can be, besides a hop monster.
