4.78/5 rDev +5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Poured into Surly pint glass
Canned on 1/21/14
Appearance - Hazy golden honey. 3 fingers of fluffy, foamy head. Thick lacing.
Smell - Tons of grapefruit. Tangerine. Little bit of floral as well.
Taste - HUGE citra flavor, along with some pine and a really nice bitter bite. Very smooth. Toasty malt backbone that holds it all together. I can't find a single flaw in the taste. Solid 5.
Mouthfeel - Med/heavy body, medium carbonation, dry finish.
Overall - The 2014 batch is out of this world. The minor details like appearance barely matter here. The taste is a solid 5/5. If you love big citrusy DIPAs, get a 4pk of this as soon as possible.
Serving type: can
