3.33/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours an orange/yellow with some reddish glints capped by a mound of frothy head. Lots of lacing on the glass.

Smell is a moderately strong sweet and herbaceous scent. A bit like a bag of dried out ganja (if I can remember back that far) but not so pungent.

Taste is nice to start with a pleasant juicy hop flavor balanced by some malty sweetness, but the aftertaste is like a bite of hairspray. Bitter without any pleasing characteristics. Gotta grade down on that one.

Mouthfeel is slightly watery but with some nice creamy carbonation. Not harsh.

The aftertaste kills this drinkability score, but the rest of its attributes manages to make it average.

3.41/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a bright golden color that is crysta clear. Not many bubbles. It has a slow forming 1 finger white head. Retention is poor.

S - Very nice hop aroma. Lots and lots of citrus. Strong grapefruit and lemon. Mild pine in the back. It does have a solid malty background as well

T - All hops! Lots of pine, not the citrus that was present in the aroma. Malts are not present.

M - medium body beer. Not smooth. The bitterness of the hops really hits hard with no balancing malts

O - This beer really has potential. It is good as it is. In my opinion if it were balanced a little better it could be outstanding.
