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

Pours light pale golden in color with a one finger fluffy white head that has good retention.

Smell is hop forward with fresh clean herbal notes and some citrus rind aromas that balance eachother nicely. There is also a very faint pinapple aroma that comes right before the very light malt aromas finish.

Taste follows the nose with lots of herbal hop flavors and oil first to hit the palate. Mild citrus rind follows along with some very light grainy malt and a touch of sweetness. Bitterness is mild but there are lots of hop oils and resin. Grainy mildly sweet malt comes out more as it warms.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with lots of sticky hop resin to balance. Mild sticky sweetness and moderate carbonation.

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

Crystal clear light gold body. Fizzy white head, little retention. Very active carbonation.

Grassy and herbal hop aroma with characteristic pale malt.

Flavor mirrors the scent, add a dash of pine. Definitely grassy, a little grainy.

Crisp, light mouthfeel. Clean.

A hoppy session, indeed. It's exactly what I expected. It laid it's claim, and that's what it is.
