4.45/5 rDev +2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a goblet. No freshness info on bottle. I suspect that it was rubbed off.
Appearance: Pours a clear light golden-amber color with yellow-orange highlights and a 2 finger fluffy eggshell head. Very nice lacing.
Smell: Sweet citrus with a touch of pineapple and grapefruit and hints caramel and candied malts. There's just a whiff of alcohol in the aroma. Smells delicious.
Taste: Bitter grapefruit and caramel malt up front followed by resinous piney hops and a mild candied sweetness in the middle before ending with lemon zest and pine at the finish. Aftertaste is bitter with a touch of sweet citrus and is quite long-lasting. The alcohol is subdued and just creeps through at the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-to-full-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. The tongue gets coated with hop oils which leave a sort of film which, in this case, is a good thing.
Drinkability: Very good drinkability. I'm savoring this one and will have no problem finishing the bomber.
Overall: Excellent beer overall. I'd love to try one that I know is fresh to be able to see if I missed anything. I found this one to be great, so if it gets better than this you're in for a real treat. Try it.
Serving type: bottle
