3.7/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a hazy dark orange color with one inch of white head. Nice lacing that sticks to the glass.

S: Big bready aroma with citrus pine with some strawberry and candied fruits. Some floral notes as well, appealing aroma but doesn't punch you in the face.

T: Big bready hit on the front end as well. Then on the back end has a bitterness that lingers with strawberry, orange, grapefruit and some mild pine.

M: Medium chewy body with sturdy carbonation. Semi harsh bitterness and nice and dry on the finish. Nicely attenuated.

O: Overall I really enjoyed this beer and love the dry finish. Was hoping for more and find it to be a little over-hyped in my opinion but not bad. I would drink again but not fight to get it as well.

A-EBF sample pour. Not sure if it's as from a bottle of from the tap unfortunately. Pours a darker orange with a thin, white head.

S-Zesty oranges and grapefruits. A candied citrus hop character as well. Piney, grassy and some tropical fruit hops. Malty sweetness.

T-Concentrated oranges and grapefruit like the nose. Sweet, candied orange hops, also found in the nose. Heavy on the bitter citrus. Grass and pine leave more bitterness. Some caramel malt backing.

M-Bitter. Medium bodied. Prickly carbonation. I wouldn't hate another 12 or so samples of this.

O/D-I have been waiting to try this one for years. I was very excited. I wouldn't exactly say I was let down by it because I still found it to be an amazing brew but I was sort of expecting serious epicness.
