4.51/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a golden hue with a respectable head into a pint glass. Looks promising.

Smell is... whoa. Huge aromatics of citrus, pine, and pronounced grassy, herbal character. Cilantro. Pith. Coriander. All present. Along with the more typical hoppy aromas.

Taste follows the nose. Big flavors of grapefruit, rounded out by subtle notes of orange, cilantro, and coriander (yes, the spice). Faint hint of banana. A subtle sweetness frames the hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is solid, but crisp.

This is quite bitter for my usual preferences, but very drinkable with a lot to ponder. I love this. This is the kind of hoppiness I enjoy in a brew!

4.03/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Purchased this in a 22oz bomber. The appearance was nice, but nothing to write home about. It had a decent-sized head and an almost-copper yellow color. Aroma is fantastic. It kind of smells like a tropical-citrusy fruit salad filled with pineapple, orange, and lemon with just a smattering of pine. The taste was a bit different from the aroma. There is more of a malt presence than I anticipated. The taste has more piney hops than the nose would suggest and the citrusy hop flavor is a bit more subdued. It leave a strange, piney (but not unpleasant) bitterness on the tongue. Overall, a pretty solid brew.
