4.45/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Single bottle (no date) poured into a shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, but bright golden-orange color with a 1/4" dense off-white head. Strands, walls, and islands of lacing on the glass. Plenty of bubbles coming up through the beer. A very nice looking beer.
Smell: This is a very hoppy beer - very strong in grapefruit and mango smells, with some pine thrown in for good measure. Very appealing.
Taste: A perfect blend of citrus forward hops, a solid malt middle, and then a pine-like bitter hop finish. I'm not getting any wheat here but this is a well-done beer for something so hoppy.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is fleeting on the tongue (it's there and then is gone) followed by a good thickness to the beer that lingers but not too long. There is a coating on the tongue and teeth afterwards (probably all that hop oil) but I'm not complaining. Nice.
Drinkability: I noted the higher ABV fairly quickly with this one, but that's because it was so good that I drank it fairly quickly. That being said, this one is dangerous - I want another one but I know I shouldn't it. It's a great beer - went fantastic with a meal (mustard pork-chops and potato gnocchi) and I think it would be good alone also. I can see why so many people have rated this beer highly - it is a very very good beer.
