4.5/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

pours a nice golden colour, with a small head of very tiny bubbles that disappears fairly quickly, but leaves lacing down the glass.

great, fresh, floral hop aroma.

the taste is an immediate bitter, hoppy bite, that fades into a nice balance with the slightly malty backbone. no noticeable alcohol presence, which makes it very drinkable.
body on this one is great. it's definitely not a "lite" beer, but it's also not going to fill you up with one bottle.

overall, a great beer. i'm only half way through the bottle and i find myself wishing i had another. definitely recommended.
