Quick Turnaround PA - Review

Somehow this review was lost, I originally did it in Octpber of last year, but never posted it.........

Appearance -  Slightly hazy golden orange with a 1 finger off-white head that dissipates leaving significant sticky lacing all the way down the glass

Aroma - Sweetish bready aroma, hints of caramel and some subtle but earthy hops in the finish

Taste - Strong MO flavor, very bready and malty to start off, nice caramel flavor rounded out by a strong bitter hoppy bite that lingers long after you finish a sip.  Very balanced beer starts off malty and leaves with a bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied and very silky, even with a pound of sugar in it, you gotta love marris otter! Softer carbonation that really fits PA/IPA's well

Notes/Thoughts - Good all around beer, I'm definitely enjoying the British base malts with added simple sugars to both thin the body and up the OG a tad.  I'm happy with the IBU levels in this beer but not with the hop aroma/flavor, but it was the last of the EKG's I got from Hopsdirect this past year (Low quality that Ive complained about before) so I should have expected that the aromatic qualities would be on the low side.  Cant say I taste the piloncillo much, but that could just be what you get from it.  Other sugars Ive used in the past, especially jaggery, really come through and mesh well with the flavor of MO.
