4.08/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A - Pours a hazy orange, off-white head with some lacing
S - First scent was a lot of hops. Some scents of orange peel underneath. A deeper smell reveals some hints of pine and floral. Very nice.
T - A full amount of bitterness. Definitely a heavy floral taste, not unpleasant. A little hint of fruitiness in there, even some of that orange that was smelled. I almost sensed a little bit of smokeyness on the finish.
M - Very fresh. Lightly carbonated, for as bitter as the beer is, it doesn't really leave the mouth feeling dry. A bit of alcohol on the aftertaste. Balanced fairly well.
D - It's a strong beer. The aftertaste leaves a bit of lingering alcohol, so I found myself sipping this beer and waiting for the next draw
Overall - Certainly not a weak beer. I decided to take my time with this beer and enjoyed it quite a bit. The alcohol is a little strong in the taste, but not overwhleming. Overall, quite good.
