look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Slightly cloudy gold with golden-white head of 1.5 fingers. Decent lacing, good retention.
S: Strong hop and light fruit smell with honey and wheat in the background.
T: Honey almost like mead, hops are strong and fresh, fruit esters are smooth and not cloying, and barley malt gives this a nice strong grain kick. Bitter enough to get one's IPA on, but sweet enough to keep one from cringing. Alcohol is covered up nicely until aftertaste, where it shows a little.
M: Medium body, non-astringent, good carbonation. Oily and creamy.
D: Alcohol is warming, and the beer goes down nicely. Don't drink it on an empty stomach or you'll be on your ass!
Serving type: bottle
