4.35/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A:golden amber color with a one finger off white head with some pretty decent lacing. the head dies down into nothing after halfway through the glass
S:Smells of huge flowering pine tree hops. definitely has a big sweet background but those hops are just tearing into the smell. really big anticipation from the smell
T: The malt comes through a lot in the front of my mouth but the back of my mouth is screaming with bitterness. really nice caramel light citrus with the aftertaste of lots of pine. theres a spiciness in the end like a cinnamon spiced orange while getting slapped in the face with a pine tree branch. delicious!
M: A nice pop of carbonation right when sipped but dulls out real nice to let those hops do their damage. leaves a real silky mouthfeel that makes my mouth yearn for more
D: 10% isn't crazy huge but the beer goes down pretty well. there really isnt an alcohol impact with this beer. the taste is so big with hops it doesn't even allow the alcohol to appear.
Serving type: bottle
