3.45/5  rDev -20.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the growler into a standard pint glass the day after being filled.

A: Clear medium golden color with significant white head that diminishes to a fine ring around the side of the glass. Abundant lacing remains.

S: Sweet floral hops that remind of tropical fruits or boutique hand-soaps. The smell is in no way bad, but it does not promise balance in the flavor.

T: All beta-acid hops flavors--high in flavor and low in bitter finish. The taste is entirely one-note, without the layers of flavor one might look for in a superior beer of this style. There is no malt presence identifiable, perhaps because it is overshadowed by the flavors of the hops. As far as I can tell there is no information about this beer provided by the manufacturer online, so I cannot confirm my conclusion that Simcoe hops are showcased here. No evidence of alcohol is detectable.

M: Medium viscosity, quite sticky but appropriate for the style.

D: This is a beer that tastes amazing at first but diminishes in interest and complexity quickly. A half-gallon of this seems like too much!

4.49/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Brilliant, almost clear gold. Near white head, lots of cling lace.

S - Sweet, malty, lively hops, both citrus and pine.

T - Awesome. Big sweet malt, perfumey, excellent aggressive hops.

M - Medium to heavy body, fairly clean finish at end, considering such a big beer.

D - A current favorite.
