4.51/5 rDev +8.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
APPEARANCE: What a lively looking beer? There are thousands of bubbles clinging to most of the surface of the inside of the globe glass. There are so many that they almost entirely block the view through this perfectly clear beer. It has a finger of white head on top made of bubbles of varying sizes. It falls fairly quickly and the lacing is so-so, but overall, this is a gorgeous beer.
SMELL: Piney and resinous with big mango and orange aromas. There is a hint of grass and maybe apricot? It is a wonderful blend of aromas that I only wish were a little more intense.
TASTE: Everything from the nose comes through in the taste as well. The tropical fruit is all there (with a touch of peach too), the citrus includes the orange, but also comes along with some grapefruit and the “green” smells come through with a lot more grass than the smell had. When a touch of semi-sweet malt is thrown into the mix it creates a beautifully complex beer that still has a very clean finish.
MOUTHFEEL: This is one of the easiest 5s I’ve ever given in the mouthfeel category. It’s mostly dry with just the perfect touch of sweet from the malt. The sparkle is solid but not nearly enough to prevent this from going down incredibly easy. The body is on the light side, but significant enough and the overall feel serves the flavor extremely well.
OVERALL: I expected a richer beer than this when I first tasted it, but that is not to say that I was disappointed. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the supreme drinkability of this beer. I really wish I had a case full of this beer rather than the one bottle I managed to get out here to Colorado. I would drink this beer any time, ever. I really hope they do it again.
