4.03/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
A: A lovely light ruby/sunset orange hue, with an average head. Visible carbonation is a little light, lacing is so so, but for the "lightness" of the beer, to be expected.
S: HOPS! HOPS! HOPS! YUM! I took a wiff of the bottle when I opened it and oh my, I felt like i was smelling a bag of hops bought from the local home brew store. Obviously floral and pine is present too with the hop smell, but man, the hops overpower any other smell I'm getting.
T: Let's see.. hops? Unfortunately though, the hop taste is quickly followed by a watery taste. Perhaps I was expecting Stone's Ruination with a more thick bodied non-watery taste. Regardless, a good tasting brew.
M: As mentioned above, with the watery taste, it's almost like drinking a light beer. HOWEVER, a very good, very hoppy light beer. It makes sense with the 4.4 ABV.
D: HOPS+LIGHT? Let's see, I think you could drink one after another of these, and with the 4.4 ABV, not hit the floor at the usual midnight (2AM here I come!).

Poured from a 12 oz bottle
A - pours a nice dark golden brown with a finger and a half of tan head that fades to a dense lacing
S - Citrusy floral hops with a hint of malty sweetness, very well rounded.
T - A good balance of malt and hops with a bitter hop aftertaste that lingers well.
M - surprisingly watery, not quite what I was expecting given everything else this beer had to offer...
O - A very very solid drinking beer, great balance, and a very good balanced hoppy amber, unfortunately the mouthfeel left a bit to be desired and the taste was missing just a hint of something.
