4.43/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - VERY unique...yeah it looks like a wet hop in that it is quite hazy but this thing glows. Imagine if your beer was florescent and that is this... Thinner head but it lingers well. Might have been better in a proper glass (served in a pint glass filled to the brim)

S - Wonderful resin notes hiding behind the massive citrus and bitter hop notes. The look and smell make you excited to drink it.

T - Amazing, I think this has more flavour then human taste buds can actually detect. Much superior to Sierra Nevada Estate (with a similar profile). This has lots of the resiny wet hop notes you'd expect, but also has plenty of bittering citrusy notes going on too. Malts are obviously propping up the hops but not overly evident. Love it

M - I could have sworn this was on cask based on the wonderful creamy notes in the mouthfeel. Its very nice and full with a lower carbonation then a lot of IPA types. I think its great.

D - Very high, I've enjoyed this in a bottle too - but it shines on tap (maybe dry hopping in the keg??). The amazing appearance and utterly unique hop profile leave me very content. If only it was made more often!

Serving type: on-tap

Hazy light orange hue. Enormous white head that hangs around. Aroma is citrusy and clean-smelling. Taste isn't as fresh as I hoped - granted, I'm several months late. Slightly piney, some citrus, mostly just subdued except for bitter finish. Mouthfeel is bubbly and sharp, crisp. Wish I got it fresh.

The first time I ever tried it on tap, I fell in love. It's hard to find (especially off season) on the east coast, but I literally look for it every time I go to the packie. So fresh tasting with a strong hoppy flavor but surprisingly light. Obviously better on tap in season but it doesn't fail to satisfy year round.
