4/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsener glass.
A - slightly hazy orange amber with a quickly dissipating head that leaves lots of thin strands of lacing.
S - A kind of boozy gasoline undertone comes up at first, but quickly is overtaken by the citrus and pine of the hops, faint notes of malt also in the background.
T - Crisp, bitingly hoppy at first, but had enough malt and fresh grainy taste to mellow the bitterness out. Finishes with a little bit of bitterness, bu not nearly enough to be unpleasant.
M - Fairly watery, but not limp. Carbonation is active and adds good amount of levity.
D - The ABV is slightly higher than the norm, but this is a easy drinker. Definitely a session-worthy one, just be a tad careful with it.
Overall - A nice hoppy brew with a workhorse feel. Definitely destined to be a regular in my fridge.
