3.43/5 rDev -17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance: Clear golden orange with a finger and a half of cream head with sticky lattice lacing
Smell: Lots of citrus, mostly oranges and pineapple.
Taste: Crisp with a pronounced bitterness but was a bit surprised that it registered 100 IBU. It's got a bite but not that much bite. The frontal hop assault prevented me from tasting the malt until half-way thru the glass then it kicked in (or maybe it was a little hop fatigue).
Mouthfeel: Medium with good carbonation.
Drinkability: The ABV is 10.4% but hidden. The malty sweetness combined with the sweet citrus hops was a palate burner and prevents the desire for a second glass.
Serving type: bottle
