A: this one looks good, rich amber to golden yellow on the bottom. builds a frothy off white head fairly quickly, but doesnt stick around for long. the body is beautiful.
S: fairly inviting, decent amount of citrusy hops with no one
particular fruit smell pulling past another. some mild orange and lime hints. the more i strive however, the more muddled it seems and i grow less impressed. it was fairly potent as soon as i poured, but quickly dissipated.
T: wow this really just backed off. its not bad by any means, i just thought it was gonna have more to it based on my original impulse. i get some orange peel, some lemon or lime zest, and not a whole lot else. it falls a little flat to me... like its just some hop characteristic with not much flavor to back it up.
M: meh. its got decent amount of carbonation, but because the flavors are so flat it really just doesnt do much for me. it just gets kind of watery towards the backend.
D: ill finish it, but wont seek it out again. kind of boring.

Translucent orange amber with a half inch rocky head that quickly settles into a thin layer with yeasty looking islands. Aroma is floral and not very pungent. The floral smell comes across in the taste as well. I would call it bitter and floral. If you swallow it 'hard' there is kind of an angry bitterness at the back of the throat. That is kind of cool! I would and will drink this again but there are many beers that I like more than this one.

Just noticed that this beer has an IBU rating of 29. I find this fascinating because I perceive it as being more bitter than DIPA's with five times the IBU rating
