4.23/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - slightly hazy dark amber to light brown, white foamy head with lots of lacing

S - fruity citrus with hints of vanilla, very much like a creamsicle, as the drink warms the smell changes to vanilla and toffee, I love how this smells

T - sweet, malty, vanilla with a toffee finish; hops are subdued and muddled in with all the other flavors

M - velvety, wet and slightly carbonated; good for the style

O - well balanced, definitely nailed the style, not too thick and not unfresh seeming

Serving type: bottle

Thanks to ChrisL24481 for this one. Good beer from a good trader.

Serving type: bottle

A - Hazy golden/amber. Pencil thin head with nice lacing.

S - Hop/flower nose when in the bottle. More resin and malt out of the glass

T - Nice balance of hops and malts, with hops winning out up front and malts winning in the back. A bit of a bitter hop mixed with roasted malt aftertaste. Even a bit sweet resin or citrus notes in the front. Very well balanced.

M - perfect carbonation for my taste. Smooth and refreshing.

O - Smell the bottle right when you open this up and get blown away by the hops. This was my first beer from Rising Tide and I am impressed. This was just about perfect for me with the weather warming up. Overall, well balanced and very drinkable. if it was available by me, I'd drink it often.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pour is hazed copper with a good bit of white head and some large bubbles leaving a thick lace. Nose is heavy citrus, light oxidation, and some stale biscuit like malt. Taste has some biscuity malt up front, sweet caramel and sweet malts, citrusy hops and a hint of resin. Thicker syrupy body with strong carbonation and a grainy finish. A bit sweet and hops may be fading, 2 months old I believe.
