4.55/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle into glass , super clear beer that is pale in color with lots of carb bubbles floating to the top , a one inch head that disapeared quick and not much lacing

The smell is just wonderful , super hoppy with the citrus hitting first, a little pine then the sweet malt ends it all

The mouth on it is great , nice and heavy with enough carbonation to lighten it up at the end

A well balananced flavor for a double , the hops and malt seem to trade places through the drink with a nice dry bitter finish

Overall this beer is on my list to keep around the house from now on , going to enjoy drinking more of this in the future
