4.08/5 rDev -5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
4.5- Pours a beautiful hazy light golden color. Big, lasting, pillowy head. Leaves some incredible lacing.
4.5- Very fresh hoppiness. Grapefruit, citrus, mango, tropical. Hint of sweet malt.
4- Has a great floral hop taste upfront (usually used to describe the scent but thats just how it tastes), all the citrus and tropical fruits that i got in the nose are present, the lager yeast definitely adds a new and interesting dynamic, a touch of grain. Touch of alcohol but id never have guessed it was 8.5%.
3.5- Has a sort of drying/bitter quality like grapefruit juice (which isnt a bad thing), higher end of medium carbonation level that works great for this beer. My only wish would be for a heavier body to it. Its very very drinkable which is awesome but for a "double IPA" (or IPL I should say) I think the body should be a little bigger and heavier.
4- Overall this is an awesome beer. Very glad my girlfriend picked this one out at the store. Brewing this as a lager opposed to an ale was a great idea. Pretty unique and it worked out well! Definitely one of the best beers I've had to date thats come out of my home state of MA.
