4.5/5  rDev +4.9%

22 oz. bottle from Safeway in Roseville, bottled 7/30/14

A: Orangy amber in color with slight cloudiness

S: Grapefruit, orange, pine

T: Earthy hoppiness, citrus, tropical fruit, sugar, and alcohol

M: Soft and chewy in the mouth with a sharper finish. The sweetness balances the bitterness, and this offering is really quite drinkable for 11.25%

O: Not the hop bomb that I was expecting (in a good way). This one has some true elegance and sophistication in the flavors and stimulates every part of my palette. Comes close to my borderline on sweetness, but the hops stay just sharp enough to keep it in bounds. Would highly recommend!
