Belly Hop Brewing Dragonfly – American Pale Ale at 5.2% ABV (C$4.35 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 31-Oct-2019, reviewed 1-Nov-2019)

Appearance: hazy deep gold with two fat fingers of rocky pale ivory head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: resiny pine, tropical fruit, citrus, caramel, stone fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium bitter finish. (3/5)

Pleasant and reasonably mild, if somewhat muddled and directionless. I’d like a brighter aroma and cleaner malt, but it’s OK. (14/20)

7/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
