3.76/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on April 18, 2014.

Like so many beers in its class it has a handsome looking copper-amber pour with an off-white head that fades into a ring.

Biscuit malts and floral hops penetrate the nose. It is better than a pale but not quite as hopped as a Double IPA.

Medium body mostly and smooth.

The taste brings out a decent malts-hops balance with the hops leaning toward the floral side. Lingering bitterness at the end. A beer that one can like.

Got this and Sucks. Like this better. Yeah, I said it.
A- gave it a 4.25 cuz the head retention and color is awesome. Little floaty goodies in there too, but its still clear. Just a great looking brew.
S- Balance. Hops bite you with the bitterness. Malt holds its own.
T- Balance. I love how malty it is. Bitterness is clear and crisp. You can taste the craftsmanship.
M- beautiful. Its dry, but just the right amount. Its almost got a chewy feeling to it, but its just got the perfect amount of body.
Over this beer is fantastic, Id get it over Sucks any day. Yeah, I said that again.

I put just a splash of this in my sauteed mushrooms with garlic and oregano, basil, black pepper and olive oil. It was awesome over steak.

Cheers!
