4.45/5  rDev +11%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

bottle with 22/10/10 on cap, poured into spaten becker

A - this is a very effervescent beer, there is a huge head and one should pour down the side the entire time. the head retains really well, quite extraordinarily so. the foam is also a bit creamy, but not too much. the body is a darker amber, maybe a dark burnt orange colour; beer has slight turbidity, and some very noticeable visible solids of yeast just kind of chunkin' around and sinking. there is abundant lacing as well.

S - quite a good nose. the top layer is the single faceted face of the hops, but underneath them are a slew of interesting and delicious flavours. there is almost a fruity spiciness to the rest of the nose: apricots and grapefruits are the only ones I can fully discern. but rest assured, there is plenty more depth to it.

T - a good solid tasting beer. the initial tastes are the simcoe hops and this juicy frutiness they have that is incredibly like grapefruit pith. aside from the grapefruit, the hops have very good bitterness to them, not just a simple hoppy vegetable or herb like bitterness, but one that is like an amalgamation of different citrus oils and pith and tart herbs. the finish is the usual simple bitterness of hops, and not much else except for the very end of the finish, which becomes very sweet. the aftertaste is yeasty and bitter, quite bitter at the back of the palate for some reason.

MF&D - the feel is a bit too astringent for the style, but other than that the beer is rock solid and very delicious, lending itself to much drinking.
