This is my forth beer from Backlash and I have enjoyed every one. They have one of the best logos in craft beer nd their early beers all had wax dipped bottles which was a very cool addition to an already appealing package. Riot is part of their double IPA series which started out as a 3 beer series but they have now added a forth beer.
Riot pours a beautiful orange color with a single finger white head. Aroma is a little subdued compared to other DIPAs but still very nice. Plenty of citrus, pineapple and a bit if pine. Not a lo of bitterness but it is there. Overall this is a well balanced DIPA that preserves the hops but is still pretty well balanced. Looking forward to more from Backlash.
