4.5/5 rDev +18.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Burnt orange/tan, monster thick foamy 3 inch head with tons of lacing.
Smell - Rye, hops, orange, pine, grapefruit, some sugars and spices and a little malt.
Taste - Much like the smell, very hoppy with a nice rye and malt backbone. The bitterness is tamed alot from the rye. The hops are sweet, yet bitter and citric. The mix if sugars and spices add balance and break up some of the hop kick. Theres a little alcohol warth at the finish.
Mouthfeel - Hops coat, bitter and numb the tounge then leaves it dry. Palate gets remaining hops and some sugars and spices. Finish is hoppy, dry and bitter.
Overall - Awesome, very hoppy, rye is present, and the beer is balanced quite well. Its balance along with the sweet and bitterness really makes it fun to drink. A real winner and one of the best new beers ive had so far this year.

A: Extremely hazy, bold orange color with a very nice head that eventually thinned out to a half finger. Gorgeous lacing.
S: A hop bomb. Tons of dank citrus notes with a nice bit of malt sweetness - not too much mind you- but enough to really showcase the hops. Very fruity.
T: Much like the nose, it's a full parade of all things "hop". There's just enough bitterness to get you where you're going, but the hop flavors are the star of this show.
M: A particularly smooth texture with a more than medium, but not quite medium-heavy body. Really, it's borderline perfect. The flavor isn't too sweet, but they achieved this perfect body for the hops.
O: I hope they keep this beer in their regular rotation, because I'm a big fan. Another excellent beer by the folks at Hoppin' Frog!
