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: Cloudy chestnut colour. Thick white crown. Plenty of lacing that sticks to the side of the glass. Rather discreet "bubbliness".
S: Big loads of hop aromas. Tropical fruit, mango, passion fruit etc. At the back some malty sweetness.
T: Heavy on the hops. Piny bitterness. Tropical fruit here aswell with a distinct bitterness at the end. Malty sweetness.
Mf: Medium body. On the heavier side of carbonation. Dry feel on the tounge due to the hops.
O: A very good version of an american pale ale. Typically modern american ale with a heavy dose of hops. Nothing spectacular I would say but indeed a great beer. Gets plus for balance.
