4.58/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Color: pours clear, light golden-brown. sits brilliantly clear gold with a light brown hue

Smell: extreme amounts of rough, piney hops followed by the guava, which imparts a tropical fruit aroma simlar, and in addition to, the grapefruit from the hops. malt takes a limousine back seat

Taste: just like aroma. lots of prickly, piney hops along with a slightly tart guava and grapefruit character. bitterness is somewhat subdued until the finish, which is pretty bitter and moslty dry with a little bit of lingering tropical fruit. bitterness hangs around for a long time

Mouthfeel: slightly dry, low-medium body with medium carbonation

Notes: what a treat! no-holds-barred pine trees and guava/grapefruitiness.

Serving type: bottle
