Rural Routes Brewing Company Late Harvest IPA – American IPA at 5.9% ABV | 78 IBU (C$4.32 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 21-Nov-2019, reviewed 1-Dec-2019)

Appearance: slightly hazy deep gold with two fingers of fluffy off-white head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: caramel, citrus, pine, earth. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium bitter finish. (4/5)

Somewhat old-fashioned and slightly EPA-ish, though with a more pronounced bitter. Decent enough, I suppose, but just not very exciting. (13/20)

6.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
