4.23/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: beautiful, light yellow-gold... slight-moderate haze... ~1/4" white head once poured, smatters of lace... cap stays till the bottom
S: pineapple, mild pine... light-moderate solventy alcohol... perhaps some honey-ish malt... overall more subdued than I'd expected
T: bright, explosive burst of resiny hop flowers.... little bit of that pineapple and some a very soft wash of zesty-peppery (pepper, as in fresh chili) bitter hop in the finish, long into the aftertaste.... the 70 IBU is well blended and balanced into its composition.... wonderfully clean and invigorating overall.... not beat-you-over-the-head hoppy... more fruity complexity (lemon zest) unfolds with rising temp and subsequent sips.... not the least bit sweet
M: as light-bodied as a pilsner and super clean.... the perception of bitterness and its taste-bud-scraping effect increases somewhat exponentially
O: pretty damn fantastic.... simple and effective... I hate to say it could use a bit more depth in hop variety and malt biscosity (amount of biscuit flavor).... there are other beers out there that will fulfill that need.... I did down this unusually quick
Serving type: bottle
