4.38/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a pleasantly dark gold, almost light amber, hew. It's topped off with an amiable half inch snow white head that makes a rather abrupt departure.

S: Delectable hop notes are the first to make an appearance, followed by a profuse candy like sweetness from the malts. The hops provide an excellent citrusy scent, but almost appear infused into the sweetness rather than vice versa as anticipated.

T: Truly unique hop characteristic. The hops are present from the second it touches the palate. The malts appear towards the beginning to alleviate the bitter bite of the hops and the burn of the alcohol. Highly complex and does well at disguising the alcohol.

M: Astounding carbonation serves as an excellent catalyst distributing the flavors perfectly. A powerful stickiness laces the mouth in a distinguishably pleasant way.

O: An exquisite brew that is almost spot-on with the style. The hops play very well with the malty sweetness providing a must try beer.

Serving type: growler

3.8/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Fairly clear deep golden with a lingering frothy ivory head.

Aroma is resin, citrus, lightly floral, and malty.

Flavor has a strong, slightly sweet malty base, with notes of resin throughout. Citrus and bitterness are secondary.

Body is fairly full, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

Not as hoppy as I expected. Fairly sweet, and I hoped for more character.

Serving type: bottle
