4.34/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with some orange and amber highlights as well as significant amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a three finger tall foamy head that slowly reduces to a finger tall dense foamy head covering the entire surface of the beer evenly. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Significant aromas of hops - tropical/pineapple, citrus/ruby red grapefruit, and floral/orange blossom. Very light amounts of caramel malts and some artificial sweetener sweetness.
T: Upfront there is a light amount of caramel malt sweetness but that is quickly overtaken by the flavors of the hops - first there are huge amounts of tropical/pineapple, followed by a slightly lesser amount of citrus/ruby red grapefruit, and just a touch of floral/orange blossom. Light to moderate amounts fo bitterness which fade away after a short amount of time.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky with a light amount of dryness in the finish (which lingers on).
O: This beer is actually quite easy to drink as the mouthfeel is quite nice and the alcohol is well hidden - there are also beautiful aromas and taste of the hops. The hops are really highlighted with this brew and I'm very excited to finally have found it and gotten the chance to try it (I missed it last year because I was travelling).
