Big Island Brewhaus Overboard IPA American IPA at 6.9% ABV | 50 IBU (US$9.99 at Safeway, 650 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 20-Apr-2019, reviewed 21-Apr-2019)

Appearance: hazy pale amber with a short pearlescent head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: resiny pine, floral, citrus, grass. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium bitter finish. (3/5)

Not bad at all. Slightly old-fashioned/West Coast-ish, with a dank resiny pine leading the way, but pretty well done. In particular, the sweetness remains restrained but sufficient to support the moderately high bitter. That moderately high bitter never becomes overwhelming or astringent, and finishes long but clean. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
