3.13/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

A mildly hazy orange gold colored ale with a crazy thick white head. Densely bubbled and sticky with lacing, this head is a 4.0 by itself.

A pleasant floral and somewhat perfumey hop aroma, nothing overpowering but it does dominate the aroma with nothing in the malty department to speak of.

Hops do dominate the taste as well, with a floral and citrus character. Some nice spice characteristics as well, with just a nice little bitter bite in the end.

This beer is way over-carbonated. Each sip foams up in my mouth and upon swalowing makes me feel bloated and uncomfortable for a few seconds...kind of like Diet Pepsi does. Not too good in the mouthfeel or drinkability department thanks to this.

Too bad because this had potential for a <5% abv pale ale.
