3.6/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into pint glass

Appearance: Light gold with a thin layer of lacing.

Smell: Sharp foral hops and more hops... basically just hops.

Taste: Hops and bitterness overwhelm the palate. Not a whole lot of complexity from this one. I'm a hop head and I'd prefer something with a tad more complexity. Ends dry with lingering floral/citrus hops.

Drinkability: As with most hoppy brews, this brew is crisp and refreshing, but it lacks complexity.

Serving type: bottle

4.61/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Serving type: bottle
