4.5/5  rDev -2.6%

September 8, 2014

12 oz bottle, weizen glass

A – Pours orange to light amber. Thick finger of head that sticks around for a long time. Mild haze, probably from being poured cold, mostly good clarity otherwise. (4.00)

S – Lots of lemon and other citrus, a bit of fresh cut grass, grapefruit. A hop bomb. Some malty sweetness on the nose but balanced hard towards the hops. Some malt thickness. (4.75)

T – Very malty and then the hops take over. Citrus and grapefruit melts into a perfectly bitter finish. A ton of hop bitterness but really well balanced with the malt. (4.50)

M – Very malty, relatively full body, just a bit of acidity leading into the finish. Bitterness coats the tongue, balanced with malt sweetness. Not a palate wrecker despite smelling like it could be one. (4.50)

O – Having had this before without evaluating properly, I was pleasantly surprised to remember how well balanced it is. There is a ton of hop flavor, aroma, and bitterness, but does not destroy your taste buds. The malt has a great presence as well and really works together with the hops to create a remarkable beer. Great example of the American Pale Ale style. (4.50)

Poured into a nonic a clear medium golden with a large fluffy white crown that settled very slowly into a frothy mass.A big shot of grapefruit hops hits ya in the nose along with some overripe tangerine,a sweetish biscuit malt is noticable as well.A healthy dose of citric hops over top of sweet biscuit on the palate,more fruity hops than bitter.A great pale ale,it has a huge dose of hops but it's actually a pretty rounded palate.

A: Pours a nice anger/ orange color with some haze. Forms a full white head that slowly dies. Lots and lots of lacing in this beer.

S: You can smell this beer from a foot away and it smells great. Floral hops, citrus, lemon zest. In the background is some pine, grass and malt. The floral hop aroma is really outstanding.

T: The citrus/ floral hop flavors hit first with a dry bitterness to the finish. Some pine and hay flavors present even stronger than in the smell. This beer is a study of balance and contrast.
I enjoyed this beer more once it warmed up and the flavors became more pronounced. I usually drink pale ales cold, but this one is good enough to enjoy at cellar temperature.

M: Nicely carbonated as benefits the style. Fuller bodied than most pale ales, the very dry finish leaves you wanting more.

O: This is a quality beer. The hype may have exceeded what you get in this beer, but you will not regret giving it a try. Not overly complex, but very flavorful for the style and very nicely balanced. An enjoyable drinking experience.
