4.15/5 rDev -4.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Previously gave this beer a 3.7/5, but the bottle was a bit out of date for my preference. Re-reviewing a bottle on 12/18/11, bottled on 11/18/11.
Apprearance: Pours a warm honey color with great clarity. About 2 fingers of eggshell-white head form that has good retention and lacing.
Smell: Honey-like malt sweetness comes out first. Citrus and dank hops as well, with quite a bit of pine. Very fresh and aromatic smell.
Taste: Some light malt sweetness comes out first, but following is a great bouquet of hops. Citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, dankness, and pine. Superb.
Mouthfeel/Overall: This beer is light to medium bodied with very fine carbonation. Pretty smooth drinking. Overall, I'm much more impressed this go-around with the beer 2-3 months fresher. Great example of why IPAs should be drunk fresh. Hops are showcased very nicely.
