3.95/5 rDev -7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Crystal-clear glowing orange with a medium white head. Decent sticky and irregular lacing, with moderate carbonation. Obviously filtered.
Smell: For a beer that's dry hopped, I'm not altogether impressed with the aroma. Slightly spicy hops with a decent backbone of sweet malts.
Taste: Initial bittersweet mix of spicy hops and complex malts. Creamy in the mouth, with nice balance. Don't get me wrong, it is a bitter beer, with massive high-alpha bittering hops for a pale ale. But balance is the name of the game here. Relatively high alcohol is barely noticeable except for a warming of the face. Nice finish, with juicy citrus flavor.
Serving type: bottle
