1737th Review on BA
Draft to 22oz Mug
@Dallas Fort Worth Airport
App- A very dark orange with a bit of a golden hue and maybe a touch of browns. Only a small 1/4" of bubbles due to a fuller pour. The head was a bit of an off white that fell quickly. Nice falling cling lines.
Smell- The english hops and malt combo come full force on this one. The malts create the base and then the hops add a certain tinge of a malty, orange pulp, butterscotch aroma.
Taste- Well I had this on my wants and I think for a good reason. This is a good example of an english IPA. Having more than the simple American Hop bill, lent this to be a bit more malty with and a simple english bitter like flavor. The aroma also brought its characteristics to the taste with a small orange, butterscotch flavor. A bit of a earthy flavor blends it all together.
Mouth- A small medium body with a stronger medium carbonation. A strong malt flavor comes out on the residual flavors with that english malt bill and a small bitter. More of that butterscotch flavor comes out.
Drink- This was pretty good. It was new and an english IPA. Something different and flavorful to sip on at that airport. Glad I could check this off my wants.

A: Poured, from bottle, into my Duvel tulip (c'mon, give me a break, it was the only clean one!)...Deep amber hue, with a frothy white-ish head...Decent lacing on the glass
S: Some citrus hops upfront, with a good amount of toasted malt too...
T: Hop presence throughout, but not over powering...Slight heat of alcohol...Buscuit and hops linger on the palate...
M: Crisp, not overly carbonated...nothing to complain about here
D: A decent brew, wouldn't complain about revisiting this IPA, but, being somewhat of a hop-head, I kinda wish there was more of a hop presence...Really, just splitting hairs at this point, definitely worth a try.

3.11/5 rDev -14.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Characteristics: low carbonation, slightly hoppy, medium sweet (sweet aftertaste), very dry. No really dominating/characteristic taste, very balanced and average.
Overall a average IPA, not outstanding but not bad either, something you can have in the fridge.
