Too carbonated. Not hoppy enough. Flat finish.

on tap at irish pol in philly

Pours a dark amber color with a layer of beige head. Filmy retention slowly dissolves, leaving some spotty lacing on the glass.

Slightly bitter in the nose with some citrus notes. Faint sweetness and bready malts with caramel. Not particularly exciting.

Light bitterness with oily hops and leafy notes. Dry pine notes with resin. Thick, sticky malt backbone with bread crust and caramel sweetness. Light warmth towards the finish.

Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and dry on the tongue. This is a pretty nondescript IPA, and the name is laughable. Not something I'd seek out to drink again.
