look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a dark reddish-brown with a two-finger off-white head. Lots of heavy sticky lacing.

S - Aromas of grassy hops and biscuity malts.

T - The flavor starts with a light cherry sweetness and than turns into a hop assualt. The hops produce a good deal of bitterness. The finish has a lingering grapefruit rind aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - Solid beer and hard to beat for the price. Definetly a must try for any beer fan.

Aromatic with a bitter hops finish in the end.

It had been a while since I had this beer so I figured I would pick it up and review it again. This beer is, as reputed, a very good beer. Pours nicely with a nice thick head. Very aromatic, the aromas are probably subjective to the drinker as there is not really a noticeable aroma that stands out above the rest to me and other individuals I have spoken with have their own opinions as to what truly stands out in this beer. (The same goes for the taste)

Easier drinking than they state on their label in the back; pretty hard not to like this beer unless your moving from a straight horse pess pilsner.

More hops than anticipated but I like it.

Salut
