Picked this up along with the Nogne Brown Ale at Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA for $3.99 for the 1 PT 0.9 fl oz. Relatively new to GA, they also have the Imperial Stout on the shelves. Having tried the Brown Ale yesterday, I was not surprised to find this beer also WAAAY heavy on the hops for the style. EXTREMELY bitter for the style.
Mid-orange color with brown highlights, some chill haze, a smallish head and a little lace. Aroma is inviting with a nice English biscuit malt balance and citric hops. I was hoping for the biscuit malts to be incorporated in the taste, but to be honest the hops completely take over. Light but satisfying in the mouth.
Very astringent citrus in the finish, which for me, takes this almost out of style. Quite dry. To all intents and purposes this is an American IPA rather than a simple Pale Ale.
