4.6/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: A hazy copper with a finger of head that leaves heavy sheets of lacing and a nice collar all the way down.
S: From the second you open the can... AMAZING!!! Nice fruity hops, pineapple, mango grapefruit with a bit of the piney hops coing through at the end. Make this into an airfreshener and it will sell out! GREAT AROMA, now the taste....
T: Just as the aroma leads to...amazing! Starts just as the aroma does with a fruity hop taste. Nice sweet middle with an almost bready earth type pine hop and malt finish. Nothing over the top bitter but has a really nice bite.
M: Fairly dry beer with decent carbonation. Nice bitterness but nothing overpowering. For 9% doesn't have the booziness some do.
O: WOW. I need to run back and get a couple more of these!!! Very fresh and flavorful beer, aroma was AMAZING. Canned and consumed in less than a month... cant get much better than that! Surly you did it yet again!!! Glad to be a Minnesotan!
Serving type: can
