I didn't like it, and I think 94 is a silly score. How's that?

Pours a clear yellow color with at least an inch of a white head. The head dissipates fairly quickly, leaving behind some lacing.

Fairly intense smell to it, quite a bit of hops there. Seems to be pine, citrus, and floral notes.

Starts out with a bit of malt and citrus. Little bit of grassy flavors, maybe a hint of wheat. Has a bit of a pine like aftertaste, the bitterness lingering after I swallow.

Solid smooth feel to it, goes down fairly smoothly.

Not being a hop head, I was a bit concerned about this one, but I found it a nice beer. There is a very definite hops presence there, but not to the point of dominating the beer so much that they are all you can taste. It kind of bridges the gap between a full on IPA and something less hoppy. I am still not a hop head, but this is one hops heavy beer I wouldn't mind having again.

Not good. Does not taste like beer. Would rather drink pink wine.

I'm not normally a fan of very hoppy beers but this is a great example of flavor and crisp bite. You can smell the layers of hops right from the start but the sharp taste makes this an excellent beer..

Medium hop. Smells more citrusy and spicy, not alcohol smell which is surprising for higher level. Little too citrusy of a hop for me, need more of a smooth aftertaste rather than grapefruit notes. Enjoyable beer overall
