4.15/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a very hazy, bright golden orange color with straw colored edges and a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting roasting. Spots and streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Floral, juicy hop aroma with a nice balance of dank, earthy resins and crisp citrus/tropical fruit sweetness countered by a pale biscuit-y malt backbone. Hints of fresh cut grass, pine needle and crystallized kind bud followed by grapefruit, mango and blood orange sweetness. This citrus/tropical fruit presence really stands out providing perfect balance to the earthier notes. Subtle pale malt backbone some biscuit, bread and cracker.

Medium body with a blast of sticky hop bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt backbone into a dry finish. Dry and earthy with hints of spruce tip, chewy pine needle and resinous hop oils but the complexity of the hop profile prevents it's from becoming overwhelmingly bitter. The citrus/tropical isn't quite as strong as in the nose, but it is still pretty prominent with hints of juicy grapefruit, mango, curaçao and pineapple balancing out the bitterness. In addition, the pale malt backbone provides more complexity and balance with subtle notes of biscuit and graham cracker. There some faint boozy sweetness toward the finish but it doesn't hinder the hop flavor at all and this beer remains extremely drinkable at 7%. After a few unexpected let downs from Captain Lawrence recently, this beer was a very pleasant surprise.
