Black Raven Brewing Co. : Fresh Hop IPA

Fresh Hop IPA
Black Raven Brewing Co.
14679 NE 95th St
Redmond, WA

Aroma: (10/12) 
Lemony and orange hops on the nose.
Appearance: (3/3) 
Light / golden hued. Very good lacing.
Flavor: (16/20) 
Light hops on the front. The middle tongue continues with that and then the end finishes with a tiny bit of malt and some hop remnants.
Mouthfeel: (4/5) 
Very light body with some pepperiness that tingles along with the hops.
Overall Impression: (8/10) 
A very solid offering. I could session this beer, but I usually like to try different beers at one sitting. So, I probably wouldn't purchase this beer again. Doesn't stand out from the crowd.
TOTAL: 41/50
