3.7/5 rDev -12.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Light amber in color, fairly heavy pour creates half an inch of off-white head that peters out to a thin bubbly film. Nice lacing but not as much of a cap as I prefer for the style.
This beer smells great. A Balanced mix of fruitiness and hops. Not much in the realm of malts or bread/wheat that I expected, probably due to the intense hope spiciness.
There is a lot going on with taste. The fruitiness in the aroma is not as pronounced in the taste as the hops really take over here. The hops take a brief second to kick in as the taste starts a little spicy and finishes more bitter. There is a little bit of bread in the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel is a little more dry than I expected, slightly astringent. a decent amount of carbonation, I would say a little more than moderate. Light to medium in body.
Overall pretty good. Personally I would rather have a little more malt in the backbone of this one. The hops are balanced out in the aroma but not in the taste. I do like the lightness in body for the ABV. This one does not taste as strong as it is.
