4.25/5  rDev +11.8%

One of the most complex beers I've had lately. The bitterness is followed by a lovely sweet aroma and aftertaste. Pours virtually no head but the lovely amber color of the brew compensates for it.

A - pours a clear copper amber with near white head, strong retention and marvelous lacing.

S - super sweet. Sweet apple and pear, a bit seedy. Malty sweetness

T - much too sweet but not unpleasant. Initially mild bitterness and big sweet apple/pear/peach flavors, big alcohol sweetness/medicimy flavor kick in. Finish is slightly bitter,nice sweet pear notes at the finish. Medicimy sweet pears sum it up. Not bad but not quite what unwanted it to be.

M - fullish bodied, smooth, less than average carbonation. A wee bit of a sipper.

O - I've had big iPad in the same abv ballpark that were significantly !ore balanced/IPA like

Tasted On: 07-09-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Single from Let's Pour mailorder

A: Semi-clear, golden beer capped with 2 fingers of offwhite head, with very good retention and a nice amount of lacing.

S: Aromas are all hop-forward, with citrus, grapefruit and floral notes.

T: Sharp bite from the citrus hops is in the forefront. I also get a little bit of honey-like sweetness. Quite a bitter brew here

M: Body is medium, with what I'd call an average amount of carbonation. The aftertaste has a prominent astringency that is unpleasant. This improves a bit as the beer warms to room temperatures.

O: A good beer but the astringency was a negative.
