Nitro On-tap growler fill into pint glass

Appearance- Dark copper, clear about a finger of white head that fades quick

Aroma- Faint for something named hop explosion, There are grassy hops some pine, caramel, biscuity malt but its not very strong. Was hoping for some citrus or tropical fruits but not to be.

Flavor- Some caramel malt sweetness, decent bitterness, grassy hops, some pine, its pretty muddy hard to pull out anything strong.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, fairly low carbination for an IPA, no alcohol present

Overall- Its kind of bland for the style not a whole lot of hops in terms of aroma or flavor here. Its not bad, just not something I would seek out or recommend.

A: This poured a clear dark gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like lemon and mango, with some copper and bready malt and a bit of honey.
T: It tasted like citrus zest and copper and grapefruit, with some honey and mango. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was slightly thick with a little carbonation. Oily body.
D: This was a nice IPA. The scent and taste were enjoyable. The body was good with a pretty smooth finish, so it was easy to drink. Nothing ground breaking, but a nice brew anyway.
