4.29/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Pours a very light orange color, almost straw color. Few carbonation bubbles can be seen. The head is fairly short.
Smell: Very pleasant aromas in the smell, although the smell itself isn't as strong as I would like.
Taste: Citrus, grapefruit, and some pine from the hops. A touch of malt to balance, but the hops work here the most. Fairly complex with all of the flavor.
Mouthfeel: Excellent. The thickness of the beer is spot on, and the carbonation is very good, although maybe a touch much. The beer finishes nicely despite the dryness and bitterness at the beginning of the taste.
Overall: This beer goes down incredible easy, has a nice flavor and nose profile (although neither are quite as pronounced as I would like) and an excellent mouthfeel. In my opinion the beer doesn't live all the way up to its hype, but it's still something I'd seek out again.
Serving type: bottle
