Consumed: 10/30/14

A: 4.25 Pours a coppery-gold with a bit of haziness. The off-white head is quite large and dissipates rather slowly.

S: 4.25 Bright hops come first with lots of citrus and tropical fruit, especially pineapple. There’s also a fairly strong malt background with a good amount of fresh bread aromas. Some interesting spices are coming through too; there’s mainly pepper and nutmeg, which are rather unexpected considering the other aromas present.

T: 3.75 Fairly strong hop presence up front with similar flavors as the nose. However, the hops are quickly taken over by malt. The result is a rather sweet and muted finish with traces of hop bitterness.

M: 3.75 The body is rather thin and feels a bit unsatisfying, which is surprising given the strength of this beer. Carbonation levels are good, but overall it could be more substantial.

O: 4 The aromas are very nice on this beer and it would be much better if the flavors matched the complexity from the nose a bit more. Definitely not a bad beer by any means and it is quite drinkable, however there are more interesting options out there.
