Shiva IPA

Bomber from Riverside Beverage in Chattanooga, TN, USA. I *think* that this was $3.99 (maybe $4.99). Either way, pretty good value I’d say.
Orange/amber pour in the Duvel tulip from the 22 oz bomber. Clarity is very obvious. The head is very small with a touch of lace. Spotty film forms on the surface and produces a small collar.
Nose delivers a light, earthy hop note but not much else.
There is a decent dose of diacetyl in the taste which is a little unfortunate. It doesn’t spoil the beer completely for me, but it does influence what I can taste quite significantly. Floral and light hops which seems quite grassy, organic and fresh. Clean, perhaps a little too clinical. Dose of soap in there too which I enjoy.
Interesting beer that might grow on me in time.
