2.55/5  rDev -41.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Slightly hazy, pale yellow pour, with a thin cap of bubbly white head that retained as a ringlet; light lacing. Grassy aroma, pine needles, distant biscuity malts, pretty stale overall. Major vegetal hop bitterness in the taste, the bitterness nearly blasting out all flavor and complexity in the brew; grass and pine-scented cleaner, ammonia, herbal tea. Body was light and watery, like lagery, but not fleshed out enough with malts to compensate for the overblown hop profile, and the higher almost soda-like carbonation wasn't helping either. "Messy" I guess is a good way to describe the beer. Between the people fawning over this when it was shared, and the high ratings it seems to get...I'm simply confused.

500ml to a tulip glass

A- bright hazy orange with a pillowy tight bubbled 1 finger head

S- mango, pineapple, sweet grain, ripe pear, fresh squeezed orange juice.

T- Pineapple, grapefruit rind, some resin and bubblegum mid mouth, some sweet malt coming through, mango, orange peel, a hint of booze thats met with some peaches. more bitter grapefruit on the finish

M- Medium- light bodied, sweet, tingly carbonation, bitter and dry.

O- wow, move over whales! this is a epic beer. tons of citrus, perfectly blended hops, just outstanding. still having trouble believing this is a lager
