O.T. Brewing Company Running Back IPA American IPA at 6% ABV (C$3.64 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 22-Aug-2019, acquired 29-Aug-2019, reviewed 13-Sep-2019)

Appearance: near opaque pale gold with one fat finger of loose pale ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim and ring, minimal spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus, coriander/clove, stone fruit, caramel, wheat. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration bitter lightly spicy finish. (4/5)

In my experience, I’ve found this to be a tricky style to get right – in particular, it’s very easy for the coriander / clove spiciness to linger and grow until it’s overwhelming. This one strikes a decent balance there, and although the spice load grows, it never really overbalances the citrus and stone fruit notes. Decent overall. (14/20)
