3.41/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Looks nice after the pour. Clear, golden/coppery color. Nice near-white foamy head. Good retention, some lacing.

Not easy to pull aroma, even after a swirl. The bit I can detect: pine, citrus peel, faint bread/toast. But really its surprisingly neutral. I didn't pour it straight out of the fridge--let it sit for 20 or so. After opening up in the glass for another 5, a floral (along with the citrus and pine) aroma has emerged.

There is solid bitterness, and hoppiness comes through slowly. With a swish across the tongue there is more, but one shouldn't have to work at it like that. Tingly pine/mint melds with citrus. It's well grounded by malt; light honey sweetness and biscuit. It finishes clean with lingering bitterness, orange peel.
