4.33/5 rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from tap into standard pint glass.
Appearance: Cloudy/Hazy golden with soapy foam head. Left nice sticky lacing as it receded.
Smell: Sweet and floral/citrus hops all over the place! Has a very crisp and clean scent, but also a bit sweet and herbal/flowery.
Taste: A punch of bitter citrus hops right up front, but smooths out as it lingers on the tongue. A little smoother and mellower on tap than in the can, and the hops seem fresher and more prominent.
Mouthfeel: Slippery and lower-carbonation. Medium bodied and crisp.
Drinkability: I love this stuff out of the can, and it's even better on tap. Delicious! Could drink this all night long, but at 9% ABV, I stopped after three pints. Had to drive home eventually that night.
Serving type: on-tap

4.45/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured a thick, hazy orange. Very attractive, with a long lingering head and good lacing qualities. A big nose of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit. The taste mirrors the nose with big fruit and pine, and little malt notes. Just how I like them. Great carbonation and a nice drinkable feel. Very we'll done.
