Brooklyn Brewery Defender IPA

“The flavor is more in line for the style than the aroma with a bigger hops contribution, but it’s still very berry ester–forward for style. The melon is more subdued than in the aroma. Would like some more citrus to add complexity. Bitterness is centered for the style. Spicy/pine hops flavor. Light malt sweetness. Fairly dry.”
