look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

clear coppery amber colored beer with a light khaki head.
the smell is filled with floral piney hops with a grapefruit tinge, and a bit spicy. i don't catch any malt, just this realy clean, light flowery hop character.
the taste is loaded with hops too, no big surprise. but these hops seems more herbal and medicinal than the aroma would have let on; no complaint, just an observation. the bitterness is pervasive other than the very begining where a bicuity caramel malt is present that really creates a nice overall complexity.
soft medium body with fairly active, but fine carbonation.
superbly drinkable, i put this bottle away as if it was a much smaller one. not at all abrasive, and hits all the right notes.
