look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an effervescent amber with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Serious lacing & good head retention

S: Breadyness, & a little boozeyness that stands taller as this warms & orange peel

T: Biscuitty malt, pineyness & astringency up front. More of the same as this warms, some tangerine peel, pineyness, & dryness, plus more biscuitty malt/dryness & then astringency. Maltyness, woody hops, tangerine peel & leafy hops in the finish

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, okay balance, could do without the astringency

Not bad, but doesn't really stand out in a crowded field, glad I got to try it...

Pours a clear copper color with a frothy white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of pine and citrus hops.

Tastes of a big wave of bitter hops layered on a solid malt base. Hops lead off with notes of pine, grapefruit pith, and some earthiness. Tropical fruits are also there as well. This is quite bitter overall. Malts add in a bit of sweetness with caramel and plenty of toasted bread. Finishes with a bitter, earthiness.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is pretty good, but not great. I think the hops are a little bit muddled, and could be a bit more focused.
