North Carolina

3.9/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow with a slight orange hue. The head is a creamy white the sticks with you throughout the session and leaves a lacing drooling down the glass. Good for the style but nothing spectacular.

Smell: Citrus with a huge hop presence. Slightly grapefruit and piney smell brought on yet again by the hops.

Taste: Citrus and hops attack up front with a crisp aftertaste that makes me crave more. Easy on the palate if you're a hop-head but destroys the palate's of those who aren't into super bitter beers.

Mouthfeel: Crisp with a slight bite. Leaves a nice floral hops taste on the tongue.

Drinkability: Able to finish a bomber but that's about it. Satisfying and a good representation of the style.

Serving type: bottle
