Big Boss "High Roller"
Big Boss Brewing Company - Raleigh, North Carolina USA
IPA (ABV 6.75%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a murky burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that slowly diminished, reducing to a medium puddled film and medium collar with very good sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, floral and grassy hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a light fruity ester (pineapple I believe).

The taste was lightly malty-sweet with a touch of caramel and a good fruity presence from the start, progressing into a slightly bitter hoppy taste with a hint of grapefruit and a seriously bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lingered on the taste buds for a good long while, with the bitter citrus peel taste hitting you right in the back of the throat.

Mouthfeel was a few steps beyond light in body and dry in texture with a solid medium carbonation.

Overall this is a nice fruity, bitter IPA that I found to be balanced very well, making it a smooth and easy to drink brew...
