4.13/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a clear honey color with some ruby hints. Head is small but manages to stick around for awhile.

Smell: Very potent herbal hop aroma

Taste: Just like the bottle says, "A liquid poem to the glory of the hop!" Very herbal, piney hop flavor with a nutty malt background that does not really balance the brew. Not as aggressive as I thought it would be, but pleasantly hoppy without being overbearing.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and nicely carbonated. Light-to-medium body. Overall very pleasant.

Drinkability: Surprisingly good. I was expecting a more challenging, aggressive beer but this one is really smooth and drinkable. The alcohol is well-hidden and the hops are not overdone.

I like this beer, but am not impressed enough to go out of my way to buy it again. Definitely worth a try, but don't kill yourself trying to get it.

Poured from bottle to glass. Nice head, maybe 1/4" thick. Wonderful bubbly foamy head with good lacing. Golden-yellow pour that looks delicious. Smell is citrusy and leaves you wanting to taste the beer as the smell isn't to strong. Taste is also citrus with a strong mouthful of hops. Presence is great not to bitter or much bite on the back of the tounge from the hops. Wonderful beer not only to recommend but to drink again and again.

My favorite all-time beer to date. Hoppy deliousness. Great taste. Great finish. Doesn't get much better this. If you enjoy DIPAs and hoppy IPAs. then you will enjoy this. Very hopforward with the perfect amount of bitterness with a piney, citrusy finish.
