Appearance: hazy straw with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and sticky soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: resiny pine, tropical fruit, pale malt, tart berry. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry building bitter finish. (4/5)

(sigh) There’s not much more juvenile than the pot jokes surrounding hops. Yes, we get it, they’re related. We also know you aren’t actually putting any THC in your brew (yet?), so why bother with the lame puns? That said, this really is a nicely dank West Coast style IPA. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
