3.8/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
A: Very hazy. Amber/orange. Finger off white head. Head is creamy. Moderate retention. Great lacing. Carbonation appears minimal.
S: Big malt presence hear. Caramel, toffee, bready. Hops give a big splurge of orange pith. Tangerine, slight spiciness.
T: Malt dominant, for sure. Grain dominant specifically. Lacks the sweetness component, but more than makes up for it in graininess. Hops at play are mildly citric, with orange and grapefruit. Bitterness is very floral in nature. Honeysuckle, rose water. Slightly soapy finish, with a tangerine juice aftertaste.
M: Silky, luxurious. Hell, I'd go so far as to call this creamy. Big malts give this one body and the subtle carbonation keeps it balanced.
O: This beer is solid. Lacks complexity, but the foundation is well laid. I probably won't purchase this again, as nothing wows me. That being said, I'm not dissapointed in spending my money on it.
