4/5 rDev +5%
22 oz bottle. Pours clear light copper with a big creamy off white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.
The aroma is piney, resiny hops and some lemon.
The flavor is sweet lemony honey fruits and toasted rye malts quickly followed by a big resiny piney hop bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a huge fun hop monster. The lemon is interesting but doesn't quite fit in.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a clear light copper body with a matrix of microbubbles supporting a sticky beige head that last for a good bit.
S- The woody rye note has some green lemon hops that finish the aroma. There is some caramel malt notes that come thru as the beer opens.
T- A mellow green hops flavor has dark juicy and woody qualities to it with some rye and dry toasted malt leading to a dry spice finish. There is a caramel malt flavor that grows as the beer opens. The aftertaste has a touch of sweetness with woody lemon hops flavor lingering.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz to it with no real alcohol heat.
O- This beer has a very nice blend of malts, hops and lemon herbs that surprisingly work well together. The hops are not huge and they let the other flavors come through nicely.
