3.03/5  rDev -19%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured into a Bell's Tulip on 7/25/12

A) Straw-gold and faded amber. Rather clear. One and a half finger head drops evenly despite being fed by rising bubbles. Hit-or-miss collar retention and very little lace.

S) The aroma is tilted too far in favor of the malts for my liking. Notes of caramel, biscuits and bread mask pine and sporadically placed citric tones - grapefruit pith, lemon zest and some orange peel.

T) The palate is greeted by a better hop snap than the piddly nose would suggest. Piney with an herbal twist. Interwoven dry, prickly citrus. Moderate bitterness, mainly on the finish. Mild caramel and bready flavors. It is maltier as it warms.

M) Light side of medium, as far as the feel goes. Carbonation is ample but subservient to the hop fuss.

D) Tastes better than it smells but I definitely like it better while cold. All in all, I've had better.

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

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours semi cloudy orange with a nice white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of citrus and floral hops, very inviting. Tastes of nice citrus hops, decent grain body. Beer is slightly heavily carbonated but still finishes nice for light body. Overall, a very good beer.

Snake hollow pours a dark cooper color with a small lacing head. There is a bold aroma that is similar to dirty hot dog water. The taste has a nice bold malty backbone with a good spicey hop kick. Good bold flavors. Overall strong flavors and very balanced.
