4 Seasons IPA seemed appropriate for this wretched weather and my first post here.
A:Â Could hardly contain the high carbonation on this one, big fluffy white head that poured over the top of the glass.Â The beer itself is a ruddy coppery color, hints at some orange.
S:Â Big citrus aroma with a firm, bready malt backbone.Â Balance is a bit off kilter, but has a very nice hop presence.Â Good citrus zest notes.
T:Â Starts a bit malty, ends with a firm hop crispness.Â Almost closer to an American Barleywine in flavor profile.Â The malts seem to take the forefront in this one, hops play backup.Â A bit off style.
O:Â Was tough to pour, seems a little off style.Â Flavors work well together but I wouldn't exactly call this an IPA.
